Meet Edna Jacobs, Resident, and Sue Rose, Activities Director at Mount Vernon Nursing & Rehabilitation.
Both Edna and Sue grew up in Mount Vernon, Indiana. Sue attended school with Edna’s daughter, Gayle. Edna was a well-known in the community as Sue was growing up and Sue always admired Edna’s involvement in charities, church and the lives of her children and grandchildren throughout the years.
In July, 2016, Sue was able to meet Edna on a more personal level when she came to live with us at Mount Vernon Nursing & Rehabilitation. Edna and Sue bonded quickly and Sue became like a “bonus daughter” to Edna. They both have strong faith-based beliefs, a similar sense of humor and a love for coffee! When Edna gets down, Sue knows just what to do to get her back on the sunny side of life. They sit on the front porch and reminisce about growing up in this small town. Sue often plans activity outings with Edna, visiting her old neighborhood or watching the boats go by on the river. They have also been known to stop at the hardware store that Edna’s grandson owns to surprise her son-in-law and grandson. They truly have a one of a kind connection!
