“We know that she has had such an impact in the lives of so many over her lifetime and we just wanted to get together to show her how much she means to all of us.”
Last weekend one of our residents, 98-year-old Luella Mathews, was pleasantly surprised with a holiday get-together which her family organized for her at Cedar Haven. 17 people who were in either her Sunday School class or in her Cherub Choir at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church attended along with family members and friends.
They treated her to songs from her Cherub Choir days along with Christmas songs. Luella sang along on many of the songs. Afterward, everyone enjoyed cookies and punch. Her granddaughter, Sherrie Davis, decided to reach out to past members of her Sunday School and Cherub Choir which she taught for over 50 years at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. She also contacted people who knew Luella from Cub Scouts where she was a Den Mother and the LAA playground which she helped to run for over 30 years.
Sherrie said, “We know that she has had such an impact in the lives of so many over her lifetime and we just wanted to get together to show her how much she means to all of us. She has also been receiving many Christmas cards every day from people who could not attend the event. We want to thank Cedar Haven for making this possible.”
We are delighted that Luella enjoyed her surprise holiday party! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our residents and their dear families and friends!
