Bernice Nicklas (pictured), a resident of Lake Highlands, will celebrate her 105th birthday with an Open House Reception at White Rock Court in Dallas. Family and friends from both Dallas and Pennsylvania will attend. The party is on December 18, but her actual birthday is December 23. 

The event will also feature a pink champagne cake created by Dallas Affaires in Lakewood. Bernice, or Queen B as she is known to friends, has been living in Dallas for seven years and enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She has made quite a few friends while living at White Rock Court, and the staff considers her their personal Grandma. This year she has enjoyed going on a couple of shopping trips and attending church with her daughter and son-in-law, Carolyn and Tim Johnson. Above all, Bernice has really enjoyed all the cards, messages and love readers have sent for previous birthdays. If you would like to send a card, mail to Bernice Nicklas, 9215 White Rock Trail, Unit 228, Dallas, TX 75238. — From Staff Reports
