“Norris follows Barbara where she goes,” said Activities Director Mylynda Joyce. “He took care of her when they were still at home and he tries to do the same here.”
Norris and Barbara were crowned king and queen of the memory care unit at Twelve Oaks during the senior community’s recent Valentine’s Day celebration. Karren Baker and Jim Moore were chosen as the king and queen in the assisted living unit at Twelve Oaks. Finklea said Jim’s father Hurley Moore, a former Twelve Oaks resident who has since passed away, was selected as Valentine’s Day king back in 1995. The kings and queens are selected by resident and staff votes.
Finklea said many residents and family members turned out for the Valentine’s Day celebration which included cake, punch and games. Entertainment included blue grass gospel by God’s Joyful Heirs, a group of retired seniors who perform in the Mt. Airy area.
