Making the decision to move into an independent living community isn’t always an easy one, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be a difficult one, either. The majority of residents who choose to make Fulton Presbyterian Manor their new home find that they have more freedom than before to enjoy or rekindle hobbies and interests.
New resident Fay Garrett certainly has enjoyed her share of different interests over the years, from flower gardening to sewing, and baking--especially making sourdough bread.
“The sourdough bread was so good. Everyone looked forward to getting it,” said her granddaughter Kenli, shown in the photo above with Fay.
Fay worked at First Bank and also at the utility department at City Hall in Fulton. She and her late husband, Harley, were members of Gideons International, an association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through sharing the Bible. They were married nearly 70 years.
She is a member of Heartland Church in Fulton, Mo. Lisa Garrett, Fay’s daughter, owns Unique Designs, and Fay worked there for about 10 years doing their books and taxes.
Fay is now enjoying her new home at Fulton Presbyterian Manor.
“The people here are friendly, and the food is good,” said Fay.
Fay enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren, which she’ll be freer to do now without the encumbrance of home maintenance. Welcome to our community Fay!
