Lap Robes Donated to Veterans at Miller’s

October 27, 2011

10/28/11 There is a lovely, kind lady living in Churubusco, Indiana named Peggy Whitcomb.  The residents and staff of Miller’s Senior Living Community have never met her.  How do we know she is kind; you ask?  Because even in her ill-health she takes time to sew lap quilts for veterans.  The seven veterans living at Miller’s Senior Living in Plymouth were the recipients of those lap robes last Friday. 

Whitcomb who cannot get out to deliver the robes has her friend, Joyce Wysocki of LaPorte deliver them for her.  Wysocki made contact with the activity directors at Miller’s and the date was set.  She traveled to Plymouth and personally delivered the lap robes first to the nursing facility and then to the assisted living.  After that visit she went on to Pilgrim Manor. 

The veterans at the assisted living gathered in the Main Lobby to meet Wysocki and to receive their quilts.  Wysocki told a little bit about her friend Peggy and pointed out that each quilt had pieces of fabric representing the different branches of the armed services so no one was left out. 

 Receiving the lap quilts at the assisted living were Louisa Carr, Don Keister, Fred Marrow, Kennedy Robinson, Jack Sherman, Jim Winnenger and Bill Whitesell.  Each veteran thankfully accepted their lap quilt and told al little bit about his/her time in the service.  Staff and residents of Miller’s signed cards of thanks to send to Whitcomb and Wysocki expressing their gratitude.
