ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (KVOA) - Happy Birthday to Millie Skjordah from the News 4 Tucson team!

A grand happy birthday was shared on Wednesday as Skjordah turned 108-years-old! She celebrated her special day at Brookdale Santa Catalina Assisted Living.

We asked the birthday girl to share her secret to living so long.

"I didn't die yet… yeah, I danced a lot, I think that kept me in shape. Ballroom [dancing]," Skjordah said. "Well, I like a tango and I like the waltz."

Skjordah is also an artist and shared some of her pieces with us.
