102-Year-old crosses Willis Tower visit off bucket list

A 102-year-old Merrillville resident traveled to Chicago to check off something from her bucket list. 

Willie Tillman rode all the way to the top of the Willis Tower in Chicago.

For more than 40-years the top item on her bucket list has been to travel those 103 stories straight up.

This was her wish back in 1973 when the then Sears Tower opened.

"I've never been up this high. In the daytime, I didn't know you could see this much in the day time. It's just as overcrowded as the first day I come to Chicago," said Tillman.

Tillman says she loved being able to see the city so much and says she will be back next year.
