NBC Montana has heard that anyone born on this date of 12-12-12 are supposed to be blessed with luck.

Henrietta Blair was born in Washington 100 years ago on 12-12-1912. But she spent her youth in Stevensville, where she was raised.

Henrietta spent her married life in Hamilton, as a wife, mother and homemaker.

She loved to garden and cook, and was a great mom, said her daughter Dayle Allen, of Missoula.

Henrietta is a lovely, youthful looking woman, who said she thinks she could still drive a car.

Henrietta lives in an assisted living center in Missoula.

Her celebration brought friends and relatives from all over.  There was birthday cake and presents and cards.

"This is a birthday party they gave me,"said Henrietta.  "A wonderful thing that they did. I didn't expect it."
