June 2021 – Hello Summer!
In our June Ventura Townehouse resident newsletter, meet Ms. June Susanne Gottfried.
Susanne was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Hungarian-born parents. Her father was a potter and a sculptor. Her parents exposed her and her two sisters to lots of culture, taking them to museums, concerts, theatre, and ballet from the time they were very young. She went to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, receiving a BFA in painting and printmaking, and went on to a career as an educator, and later became an art restorer with her husband Gary.
You’ll also get a chance to meet the “Barbarells” – our special group of neighbors who live next door to one another, and all share the same name: Barbara! We also honor our employee of the month, Mirella Rocha, who works in our dining room.

My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.
Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
Staff is very helpful and always concerned about my Mother’s needs, the interior and grounds maintenance is exceptional. Dining provides healthy menus to choose from. Front desk staff is always friendly and helpful. Best decision we ever made was bringing my mom here.
