Meet Cindy, the December Resident of the Month for Oaks at Oakland Plantation!
Cindy grew up on a farm in southeastern Kansas and survived the dust bowl with her family. She has an older sister, Josephine, who served as a nurse in the Army and during World War II, and a brother, Leonard.
Cindy worked as a clerk in a small store in Kansas, but was an accomplished, and industrious housewife! She enjoyed doing yard work, flower gardening, sewing, and cooking. Cindy traveled around the world following her husband, Jim, when he was an aviaries rep for the U.S. Navy. Cindy remembers Jim’s love of fishing, hunting, boating, and ballroom dancing.
Cindy was a volunteer at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in 2008, where she did hand massages and made milkshakes for patients.
Before joining the Oaks family, Cindy loved attending church and being involved in bible study. We are so fortunate to have such a sweet resident as part of our Oaks at Oakland Plantation family! She has been a part of our community for four months and enjoys playing bingo, Uno, and spending time outdoors.
We want to thank Cindy for sharing her story with us, and we congratulate her on being Oaks Senior Living’s Resident of the Month!
