'BEAUTIFUL' ARBOR ROSE VOLUNTEER RETIRES
Roseanne Thompson (85 years old) is hanging up her "volunteer
shingle." Roseanne felt destined to volunteer at Arbor Rose because
when her husband Roger was ill, Arbor Rose Hospice did a wonderful
job caring for him. And in her way, she wanted to “give back” what
they lovingly and selflessly gave to Roger and the family. Roseanne’s
favorite volunteer assignments were helping out in the BINGO room
as well as the monthly birthday celebrations. She truly enjoyed sitting
one-one-one with a participant while singing or talking about
yesteryear.
The following is from her son Ron Thompson
My Mom was born in Upstate New York September 19, 1926. Her
nickname in her younger East Coast life was "Torchy" because of her
fire red hair. But most of the time she was called Bess, her middle
name. I don't know much about her mother, but I do know that
Roseanne’s mother died at a very young age. My Mom was raised most of her childhood by her father Earl
Thomas, a commercial truck driver.

During her working years Adaline owned a
septic tank business that was very successful.

Greatest Hero's!!
She says her favorite
thing about Arbor Rose is "all the new friends I've
made."
Her one piece of advice to the youth of today

our country. From all of us at Arbor Rose we love
you!!

The first ever Arbor Rose Carnival was a
huge success. Caty, Director of Activities,
spent over a month preparing for this event.
Some of the games that the Participants and
Residents participated in included dunking
the Arbor Rose staff in the dunk tank,
playing ring toss, knocking over cans with
bean bags, fishing for prizes, throwing darts
at a balloon board, making a sand art project
and finished up the day with a pie eating
contest.
Those staff members who
participated in the dunk tank were Alex
(certified caregiver), James (fleet driver),
Cameron (food services), Karl (chaplain with
East Valley Hospice) and Darcy (Arbor Rose
Executive Director). "I could not believe
how many Participants and Residents
wanted to see myself and the other staff
members all washed up!" stated Darcy. "It
was one of the most fun days I have ever
had at Arbor Rose in the past 12 years. It
was a simply amazing day. In fact one
Participant has told all of us about every 5
minutes the day after the carnival of how
much fun he had. That's what is all about,
fun and making memories!"
From all of us at Arbor Rose we
would like to give a huge special THANK YOU
to Caty and the entire Arbor Rose staff and
to the family members who volunteered and
helped make the carnival the success it was.
Those family volunteers included Alice Baze,
Bev Pizzano, Joyce Durham, Jane and Denise
Apgar, Cindy Roose and family. And a HUGE
SPECIAL THANK YOU to Mike 'Lame-O' the
Clown! Lame-O watched You Tube video's
to teach himself how to make balloon
animals just for the carnival. Mike, um Lame
-O, you are AWESOME!!!!!!

Rosanne retires continued
Roseanne has been a homemaker all of her married life to Roger.
Before that she lived most of her adult single life in San Francisco as a stenographer for the Fibreboard
Corporation which produced shipping/product containers. She was motivated to GO WEST as a young
adult by her relatives from Southern California and decided to make SF her home where she quickly made
lots of friends mostly from work.
She married Roger in Reno, NV in the early 60's and adopted his 3 children (Elaine, Glenn, Peggy). I am
her only child and arrived shortly thereafter which she claims as the immaculate conception!
In a nutshell, my Mom is all about hard work, personal responsibility, and discipline. She still holds to
those standards today. My Dad was type "B" and got along well with it, I'm hard wired with it, but it
drove the other kids nuts some times!!! When we were kids she would portion our food in an "assembly
line of plates" and state that we had "sufficient” [amount]. She has a kitchen apron given to her as a gift
years ago which says...."I KNOW I'M EFFICIENT.....please tell me I'm BEAUTIFUL" We always got a kick out
of that!
From all of us at Arbor Rose, thank you Roseanne for all the love you have shown towards all of the
Resident's, Participants, Family members and Staff of Arbor Rose. You are always welcome to drop in for
a cup of coffee and a few warm hugs! We all love you Roseanne, you will be missed.
