Georgia was born in Oakland, CA. She grew up in Castro Valley, CA in a neighborhood surrounded by lots of farms and chickens. Frank grew up nearby in San Leandro, CA. They first met at the roller-skating rink and both Georgia and Frank loved roller skating. In fact, they each won awards in their Dance and Figure Skating competitions! And that wasn’t Frank’s only win. He also managed to win Georgia over with his listening skills! Georgia shared that she had a crush on Frank’s best friend, Doug. When Doug failed to pick her up from the skating rink and bring her home, she asked Frank. She adds how in that moment she knew Frank was her man. Soon after that they started dating. One memory she has is when they went to a Johnny Mathis concert and heard the song “Chances Are.” They later married at the young ages of 18 and 19 years old.
Frank was drafted for a 4-year service in the Air Force. He served in Vietnam, and for his last year was stationed in Las Vegas. After living in Las Vegas, they moved to San Leandro where Frank’s parents were living. Frank worked as an electrician but mostly in construction. Georgia was a stay-at-home mom, and later worked as a bookkeeper for attorneys. They both like being outdoors and enjoy walking as a form of exercise. They have a son and a daughter, 5 grandchildren and a two-year-old great-grandchild.
After living by the ocean at Seaward among younger crowds, Georgia says it was a good decision to come to the Ventura Townehouse. She noted everyone is “kind and considerate.” One day while visiting Frank in Memory Care, Georgia was moved by the pleasant music she heard in the background and asked Frank to dance. With both having a winning background in dance, roller skating, and the love they share for one another, that special dance that day sure cheered Frank up and warmed his heart. Hooray to Love, Music, Dancing, and our new Mr. & Mrs. Wyllie!
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.
