Getting to know every single one of our residents at our senior living Lake in the Hills community is one of the best perks of becoming a part of our family.
We want you to get to know them as well. This October, we are featuring our assisted living community resident, Marj Groover and a bit about her exciting life.
Marj was born in Atlanta, Georgia where she lived for only a few months before moving to Park Ridge, IL. A fun fact about Marj’s childhood is that she actually went to Maine East High School with Hillary Clinton. Marj has two sons, three grandsons, and one granddaughter. She says her greatest accomplishment is raising her sons and seeing the wonderful families they created.
Marj worked as the Quality Control Manager at Pace Paratransit Division of the Illinois Regional Transportation Authority. Her true love, though, has always been traveling.
Marj loved to travel the world. Her favorite places to travel are Iceland, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Australia. Marj has had the opportunity to travel to 49 of the 50 states, she hasn’t made it to Delaware yet.
In the past, Marj studied sign language for a year in order to help a friend with teaching her son sign language. Her favorite holiday is 4th of July as she has fond memories of going to watch the fireworks with her husband. For Marj, a pivotal moment in history was when President Kennedy was assassinated. She says her special talents include inventing amazing new dishes and concocting her own versions of foods to make delicious recipes. She loves making Thai food and is known for making an amazing Coleslaw.
