Resident’s volunteerism is an inspiration

If you think assisted living means you have to slow down, then Fort Scott Presbyterian Village resident Betty Johnson will prove you wrong.

Betty moved into the Village within the last year. Her husband Dale, who has since passed away, wanted to make sure she was well cared for once he was gone. But you could say, Betty is the one who often takes care of us around the community.

For most of her life Betty has been volunteering with different organizations. She’s spent 53 years on many different FCE committees, has been involved with garden clubs, arts councils, her church and many others where she taught Sunday School classes and participated in Lay Witness Weekends. She’s also made quilts, bibs, and wheelchair bags to be donated to families in need.

And now, she’s brought her volunteerism to the Presbyterian Village. She serves on the resident council, volunteers in the kitchen weekly, and regularly brings new ideas to the table.

Betty’s volunteerism is an inspiration to us all. She wants to make a difference in the lives of others and enjoys living life on her terms. Living at Presbyterian Village allows her to do just that!

Her 2-bedroom, 2-bath deluxe apartment comes with no worries. We take care of all the maintenance and all the work (and worries) that comes with owning a home, so Betty can use her time to do what she loves.

Thank you, Betty for inspiring us to get more involved. As her philosophy goes “be an active member or don’t join.”
