We Are Friendship Village: Vi Schliecher, resident Friendship Village Chesterfield

Question: How did you get started with sports growing up? Answer: “I’m a people person and I like to do different things. A book is nice, but I need to do something more hands-on. My whole life, I’ve belonged to several different groups. My mother was quite social, so I may have gotten that personality trait from her. She always belonged to a number of different groups and did a lot of things. When I was in my house, I was in two different quilting guilds and now since I’ve […]

We Are Friendship Village: Bill Moody, resident Friendship Village Chesterfield

Question: How did you get started with sports growing up? Answer: “Early on I played a lot of baseball and tennis. Growing up I played on two baseball teams since we didn’t have baseball through the school. From there I just kind of hung in there with sports. I watch sports as much as I can now. Having played, I enjoy watching it because I sit and think, ‘It would’ve been nice to continue on playing later down the line.’ One spring in 1948, we were down playing at the […]

We Are Friendship Village: Pat Weber, resident Friendship Village Sunset Hills

We Are Friendship Village: Mary Wahlman, resident Friendship Village Chesterfield

Question: How would you describe yourself and why? Answer: “I like to think I’m a friendly person. My mother yelled a lot when I was growing up and my dad worked six days a week, so he wasn’t around much. Because of that, I have always had a strong desire to be different than how I was brought up. My friends had families that would go and do things and I always have had a desire and wanted that also. I’m a social person. I like to talk to people […]

We Are Friendship Village: Ron Hrin, resident Friendship Village Sunset Hills

Question: What is your favorite thing to do? Answer: “My favorite thing is to play pool. It’s a good hobby. It keeps my mind concentrated. I used to play pool a long time ago when I was working, but I’m happy I’m playing now (at Friendship Village). And I really like working on puzzles, too. It keeps my mind concentrated.” – Ron Hrin, resident, Friendship Village Sunset Hills #WeAreFriendshipVillage #retirementcommunity #seniorliving #independentliving #assistedliving #memorycare #fvathome The text and photo above are part of a year-long project called We Are Friendship […]

We Are Friendship Village: Mary Mungenast, resident Friendship Village Chesterfield

Question: What made you want to get involved with the Humane Society? Answer: “My husband and I had Basset Hounds that we’d truck around from place to place with the kids as we moved, and I never had animals growing up. Obviously, we started with the animals in adulthood with the kids and that was I think what drew me to want to do more. I’m not sure exactly how it happened, but initially my intent was to go and walk the dogs and play with the cats, like most […]
