Story 28

“Playing with the girl next door and going huckleberry picking” are events a ninety-four year old lady remembers with fondness. She grew up in a small town near Long Island, New York, and later lived in Florida. It was here that, in 1944, she met and married her husband. After she moved to Springfield she worked as a sales lady in a department store. Needle work, reading, and visiting with other care center residents are listed as her current interests. Clothing needs for this lady include a sweat suit, slacks, blouse, and pajamas. She would like nail polish, Kit Kat bars, and a bracelet as extra gifts.
