Jean and Dee’s Story:
John Evans Helps Unlikely Pair Become Friends
Our community brought Jean and Dee together, and now, they are like family.

“There are things that are meant to be” says Jean, and their friendship is one of them. Jean moved to John Evans last February. Shortly after she arrived, she met Dee, who had lived here only two weeks. The unlikely pair became fast friends. “We felt God put us together almost as sisters, and a bond was created that we will always have,” Jean says. Their 20-year age difference made no difference to them. They are kindred spirits, and it’s uncommon to see one lady without the other.

Bev’s Story:
John Evans Helps Her Through Rough Patch, Now She Helps Others
When Bev came to John Evans in December of 2016, she was going through a difficult time.

While she was on our wait list, her husband had passed away. Bev was also going through financial difficulties with her home due to her husband’s illness. Despite Bev’s problems, she has chosen to focus on helping others and bringing positive energy to our community. Bev is a welcoming and compassionate presence for other residents. Her door is always open to anyone in need of a friendly listener, and she goes out of her way to welcome new residents. She invites them to eat with her in the dining room and introduces them to others. She understands the challenges of being ‘the new person” and goes out of her way to make the transition easier for others.
