Meet Etheleen K


Our Youngest-at-Heart Resident at 95

Etheleen K knows a thing or two about life – which she says is closely connected to one’s life work. She started working as a small girl in rural Hall County and now, almost nine decades later, still works daily at her hobbies of basket making and sewing. “I was raised on a farm. I did hard work; I plowed and did everything else on the farm,” she said.

She later got married and had a son, who visits her often. When asked about grandchildren, she smiled. No, she said, her son had never been married and he had told her, “that’s for the birds.”

Etheleen came to GHA 29 years ago, after losing her husband. She has one living sister, whom she sees frequently.

She is an advocate of hard work and pure living, advising younger folks to focus on their studies and jobs, and to cut out the wild stuff. “It’s hard work for me, and no wild parties,” she said.
