Getting to know each 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 December, we are featuring our assisted living community resident, Jane Matousek, who shared a bit about her life.
Jane was born in Chicago, Illinois and she raised her family in Skokie, Illinois. When her family outgrew their home in Skokie, they relocated to Algonquin, Illinois where she lived for 63 years.
The most pivotal moment in history for Jane was the attack on Pearl Harbor; she was only in the 7th grade at the time. All of the men she grew up with made the decision to go into military service following the attack, including her husband.
Jane loves to sing and dance and even said it’s her special talent. The most memorable place she’s traveled to was a visit to Ireland with her sister. Jane says that creating her family is her greatest accomplishment.
Melody Living became Jane’s home after her daughter-in-law researched the community and thought it would be a good fit.
Jane loves playing all sorts of card games with fellow residents. She especially enjoys Mexican Train and is even part of Mexican Train Club where residents get together to play their favorite game.
