Resident Spotlight

Each month we feature a resident at The Lodge and ask them a few questions to learn more about them.  This month we are featuring Rosella Lee.

Where were you born?

Max, ND

What big events do you remember most from when you were growing up?

I remember Pearl Harbor happened when I first got married.  I also remember when we first got electricity and running water.

What is different about growing up today from when you were growing up?

Kids when I was growing up found their own entertainment and we got together and all made mud pies.  Kids today seem to use electronics for entertainment a lot.

How did you meet your spouse?

I met him at a dance at the grainery.  I went with my brother and this guy wanted to take me home so he had to ask my brother if he could drive me home.

What was your first job?

After I got married I worked at a grocery store in the locker cutting up meat.  I also worked at a café that fed the men that worked at the missile factory.

If you won $1 million dollars tomorrow what would you do with the money?

I would help all my kids and grandkids.  Then I would help those that needed help like the homeless.  I don’t need to buy things for myself.

If you could go back to any age, which age would it be and why?

I would like to go back to when my husband was alive so he could go on all the Senior trips with me.  Or go back to when all my kids were together

Do you have a favorite holiday?

It used to be Christmas Eve but as I have gotten older holidays just aren’t as exciting.

What advice did your parents/grandparents give you that you remember most?

Don’t talk back to anyone.  Be nice.

Do you have a favorite holiday?

Christmas because everyone gets together.
