We Are Family
In general, people tend to gravitate toward others who share their interests. Many who move here arrived at our doorstep because of a recommendation from a friend who lives at Saint John’s. It is rare, but by no means uncommon, for multiple family members to live here though not always at the same time.
Sometimes, the situation is separated by generations. Resident Bob Taylor and his parents, Jan and Bob, Sr. (for whom Taylor’s restaurant is named) and his grandmother Ora Taylor lived at Saint John’s, Ora moving to Prospect Avenue from our prior location on Cass Street. Ardith Maney and Jim Friauf followed in their mothers’ footsteps and Elizabeth Axelrod in her father’s footsteps.
Elizabeth Bradley, Loni & Bob Kagan, and Sandy & Kerry Van Kleeck are further examples of multi-generational families.
Currently, 4 pairs of siblings call Saint John’s home – Kathy Kain and Marge Ryan, Connie Doerr and Jane Malone, Bill and Carol Carpenter, and Ellin Levy and Carol Saffro – with numerous other examples over recent years.
