Betty was born in Buffalo, New York. She is the oldest of seven children. Her mother was unhealthy, due to rheumatic fever, therefore Betty had lots of responsibilities from a young age. She often found pleasure in reading a good mystery book. Betty met her husband while serving as a juror together on a double murder case. This made for interesting conversation! They enjoyed life in Port Hueneme, for many years. Betty worked for the Ventura Unified School District; she was the personnel office manager working with administrators and teachers. For four years she taught shorthand in the adult education program. She retired in 2000 after 29 years of service.
Betty’s husband passed away four years ago. She moved to the Ventura Townehouse in June and said she loved it from the day she moved in, saying she has a lovely apartment, good food, wonderful programs, and loves seeing all the many smiling faces. Betty has one son Patrick, and he has a sweet wife and two adorable daughters. They live close by in Oxnard.
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.
