Your Own Superstore Greeter, Mikki, Turned 99!
On September 13, 2016, Mikki Paul turned 99 years old…that means that Mikki lived through WWI, The Great Depression, The Dust Bowl, WWII, The Cold War, The Korean War, The Vietnam War, Desert Storm, the Iraqui Wars and a few quiet times…she saw presidents come and go, and learned that transportation is something that is continually changing. Technology became an overpowering force in the world and people come and go in our lives.
Mikki celebrated her 99th birthday and shared her love of family and friends with Dee Sturgeon, a Sioux City Schools staff member. Mikki loves getting up in the morning and going to work at one of Sioux City’s Superstores every day.
At Kid Scoop News Siouxland, we celebrate and honor a true sense of place. We send our gratitude to this superstore and other businesses that understand how all generations of people are viable and respected throughout the region. Mikki’s work ethic is one that is well known in the Midwest, and she gives all of us a “better name” out there, when others read about her lifetime of hard work and the enjoyment of the customers…
Mikki celebrated with her children, grandchildren and great grandchild.One grandchild, MiKayla was given the nickname , Mikki, after her grandmother. When the grandchildren were asked what they loved about their grandmother, they said, “We love her. She smiles a lot and is always friendly. “ Hayden also mentioned that she didn’t act like she was 99. We should all be so lucky to have a lifetime like Mikki’s and to celebrate our years in such a fashion!
