Pola Lucero, known as “Mama Pola,” recently celebrated her 100th birthday. Pictured are, from left to right: front row, Barbara Alanis, Mama Pola, Teresa Silva and Robert Alanis; back row, Gerald Alanis, Larry Alanis of Kingman and Paul Alanis.

Longtime Prescott resident Mrs. Pola Lucero, affectionately known by her family as "Mama Pola," celebrated her 100th birthday with five generations of her family and their friends Aug. 11 at Granite Creek Park. She was born Aug. 13, 1912, in Jerome, Ariz.

Her dad worked as a hard rock miner, moving the family from Jerome to Walker, Ariz., where he continued in various mining endeavors.

She lived there until her marriage to the love of her life, Phil Lucero.

She and Phil moved to Prescott and then to California, where she worked for Lockheed for a while.

They then returned to Prescott, where she worked as a seamstress at Morris Mahler.

The job Mama Pola loved the most and takes the greatest pride in is "helping raise four generations of children."

Mama Pola's warm, loving door was always open to her family and the inviting aroma of a family recipe always on the stove, family said.

Her love of her animals is second only to her love of children and family.

When asked to make a wish before blowing out her candles, she said, "What should I wish for?"

Someone in the group responded, "Wish for another 100."

She immediately responded, "Another day or two will be fine" - and she blew out the candles.
