Biloxi native Helen Bieda turns 100

A Biloxi native and Navy veteran has hit the century mark!

Helen Bieda is keeping the good times rolling as she celebrated her 100th birthday with family and friends at the Armed Forces Retirement Home.

Helen served in the United States Navy while raising six children and had an illustrious career as a journalist.

In her sixties, Helen survived a battle with chronic lymphatic leukemia. For Helen, being surrounded by her loved ones while hitting this milestone is extra special. “This is the most special day I’ve had in 50 years at least. It’s so exciting. I can’t believe that these kids came for me. I think they’re ready to go back home now.”

Even though Helen is now 100-years-old, she says she plans on sticking around a little longer.
