Longtime Menlo Park resident Willie Mae Jones (left in photo) visited Facebook on August 30 — in honor of her 101st birthday, which was on August 24.

Willie Mae received a tour of the campus led by her great granddaughter, Keyanna Adger (middle in photo), who works with the News Feed team. After receiving a “Happy Birthday” serenade from the people at Facebook in Hacker Square, eating lunch, and experiencing an Oculus demo, Willie Mae capped off her visit by meeting with COO Sheryl Sandberg (right in photo).

Willie Mae moved to Menlo Park in 1950 from Mississippi and has always wanted to visit the campus. When her great granddaughter Keyanna joined the team this month, she shared that her birthday wish was to visit Facebook and proudly proclaim, “I know someone who works there.”
