Native North Carolinians Bob and Betty Sigmon came to Wexford House, a DePaul Senior Living Community in Denver, North Carolina, under a year ago following a stay in skilled nursing rehabilitation.
Bob, 80, and Betty, 82, have been married 42 years and their devotion to one another is evident. They are usually sitting together holding hands while they enjoy bingo, music, socials, worship services, visits from family members and pet therapy, a particular favorite as they had five dogs when they lived independently.
Bob and Betty appreciate the fact that they are together in assisted living care. They truly enjoy home-cooked Southern meals at Wexford House and are happiest appreciating one another’s company.
During their working years, Betty was a sock knitter at a knitting mill and Bob worked at an electric supply company. They have four children, two grandchildren, fi ve step-grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Both come from large families, Bob as one of eight and Betty as one of six. Family members learned of Wexford House through a local physician and thought it was a good fi t to meet their growing needs.
They’ve settled right in. According to Betty, “I’ve enjoyed meeting a lot of people here and really like all of the activities.” “Everyone here takes good care of me,” added Bob.
