July 31, 2019 – Patti Nicholson and Gloria Tibbets, the wife and sister of Resident Ross Nicholson recently donated a framed painting done by Ross nearly 20 years ago. The colorful sunset will find a place of honor at Trillium House. We thank his family for giving us this memory of Ross. He was a very special man.
December 14, 2018 – Irene Fogaroli lived with us before recently passing at the amazing age of 104. She was the sweetest lady you could possibly meet. Her favorite words here were probably “grazie”, “beautiful”, and “7 Up”. An immigrant from Italy in the early 1940s, her son Gulio shared these photos with us. He also shared that Irene loved being outside working on anything to do with gardens and plants. That included helping her grandson, Nino, with the firewood chores. It’s a nice note that Nino was actively involved in the construction of Trillium House. It was truly an honor taking care of a Irene and we miss her.
July 13, 2018 – Jean’s family asked us to share her story and her journey to Trillium House. From the moment she walked through our door, we fell in love with this beautiful lady. Jean came to Trillium House because her family and hospice team agreed she just couldn’t be safe and comfortable alone in an apartment. Her journey – and her loved ones’ – was truly more peaceful because of all of you. Trillium House is truly a home for all of us!
