Question: What memory immediately makes you happy?
Answer: “When I think about my travels. Wonderful. When Jimmy (Diane’s late husband) and I went to China on our 50th wedding anniversary, that was really special. We went on a river cruise. Another good one was when we went to Russia. We went from St. Petersburg to Moscow. We also traveled all over Canada in an RV. We also went to New Zealand for a trip and Australia for another. When Jim was working, he was always busy, so when he retired, this was something we both liked to do. He would choose and that’s where we would go. We just had wonderful times. He passed in 2015 and we were married 59 years. He passed twelve days before our 60th wedding anniversary.” – Diane Wulfmeyer, resident Friendship Village Sunset Hills

The text and photo above are part of a year-long project called We Are Friendship Village. We are gathering these photos and brief interviews for Friendship Village’s website’s blog section each day as we chat with residents at Friendship Village Chesterfield and Friendship Village Sunset Hills. We want to give a snapshot introduction to the residents who make up our wonderful senior living communities and give some bit of insight into something you might not know about them. It’s always easier to make new friends when you know a little about them!
At year’s end, we will publish A BOOK featuring the wonderful residents who participated and everyone who participates, also gets a FREE copy of the book ! During this year, we will also be sharing these photos and text on Facebook and other social media such as Instagram, so keep an eye out for them! And you can follow the hashtag #WeAreFriendshipVillage to stay up to date!
We’re excited for this great chance to share a bit about who we are! Residents’ participation takes just a few minutes, so it won’t take much time to be a part of it!!
Want to participate (or know someone else who might want to?), Please give us a call at (314) 270-7837 or send an email to [email protected] or drop by the marketing suites in Sunset Hills or Chesterfield. We have 365 of these to do over the course of the year, so everyone is welcome!
We’re looking forward to talking with folks as we get to share more about the senior living residents who are making our Friendship Village retirement communities so wonderful!
