Resident Spotlight

Woodcrest Resident Spotlight, Wanda J

This month we are excited for you to get to know Wanda J who has been a resident at Woodcrest for the past two years. Wanda was born in Hazard Kentucky and comes from a big family with an Italian background. Her grandpa immigrated to the states in the early 1900s eager to start a new life in America! She and her husband Jack were married for 30 wonderful years and she misses him terribly. Together Wanda and Jack have 5 children, three sons (Mike, John and Stevie) and two daughters (Teresa and Angie). Wanda was also an extremely hard worker when her children were growing up. Aside from raising 5 children she worked for Bob William Ford as a title clerk and bookkeeper for 30 years! A fun fact about her job is when she first started working there, she was working on an “Old Fashion” computer.

Wanda really loves participating in the activities here at Woodcrest. She said her favorite staff member is Tara with activities. Tara comes to her room and does her nails which brightens her day right up. Wanda isn’t letting the pandemic keep her spirits down! She really is missing her family members but is so happy when they come and do weekly window visits with her. She had an especially exciting 4th of July when she found out her great grandson was born! Thank Wanda for letting us get to know you more!
