Resident Spotlight: Mrs. Worth

Posted by Kia Crawford on October 19th, 2011 in Fayetteville, GA | No Comments

As a little kid being raised in Glasgow, Virginia my most memorable moments were spending time with my grandparents, sitting in her lap and rocking back and forth in that big chair on the porch and going fishing with my granddaddy. I had a very good and happy childhood. I played the position of forward for my high school basketball team (Natural Bridges) and I was themrs-worth-fayetteville best with many trophies and awards. I was an inventory clerk for a carpet mill for over 40 years and was married to the best man in the world for 50 years and to that union a star was born: my son Maurice, “He is the best kid a mom could have.” Raising kids is the most important job of your life so if you can stay with them while they’re young, it will mean a lot to you and them. I truly believe my best accomplishment is my raising my son.

During the great depression my husband was stationed in the Philippines, we learned how to survive on very little but we never went without. My advice to anyone is to “Keep your nose clean and watch the company you keep.”  Now I am living my life to the fullest here in assisted living in Fayetteville and loving every minute of it.
