Our dear resident of the month is Gloria Bacharach, born in 1924. She just celebrated her 95th birthday! Gloria grew up in Michigan, mostly in Dowagiac, Marcellus, Chicago, Grand Rapids, and Detroit. After some college, she joined her family as an office manager in their retail clothing business. Gloria met her husband, Albrecht, through a relative and the couple married in 1947. They raised four children: Elaine, Corrine, Jackie, and Alan. The family traveled extensively throughout Europe and Israel. Gloria is very proud of her Jewish family heritage and her history of volunteer work.
Today Gloria enjoys theater, playing bridge, and puzzles. She is a wonderful part of our community and is always playful and kind. Gloria’s favorite holiday is Hanukkah, and we cannot wait to light up the season for her! Thank you for being a part of our joyful and vibrant community, Gloria!
