With her family and balloons, Chantilly’s Juanita Brill celebrated her 100th birthday on June 19. Born and raised in Arkansas, she moved to Washington, D.C., during WWII. After the war, she met and married Russell Brill, and they raised their family in Silver Spring, Md. Juanita now lives in Chantilly.
Her family includes two sons and their wives, Carl and Joy Brill, and Paul and Carrie Brill, along with six grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. When asked how she was able to live such a long, full life, Juanita said she just “Got up every morning and put one foot in front of the other.”
