SUE HATCH WILSON
Born in Barkley, California 1932, and raised in Alameda, Sue has been a client with Safe at Home for six years. She graduated from Mills College in 1954 and majored in Arts. Sue married Jim Wilson in 1955 and widowed in 2017. They raised 4 children, three of them live here in Santa Cruz and one in Florida who will be returning soon. Sue is big on volunteering and fundraising. Her interest in art has slowed down, journaling and sketching have come to a stop. Nowadays, Sue reads a lot, and she collages and makes greeting cards. She looks forward to resuming a woman’s group named Coffee, a very rewarding feeling for Sue after her husband passed away. Sue’s last big trip was to London, in 2018 with Mary. She is looking forward to more traveling when the virus goes away. Sue had her knee replaced in 2009 and her second knee replacement in 2010, she found then that she needed help after the surgeries. Sue’s friend Mary Skillicorn, became part of her life, so successful that her husband started coming for lunch to be part of it all, and the three eventually traveled to Tahiti.
Safe at Home took over care in the springtime of Jim’s death. After his death, a great number of helpers came, nearly all were perfect. Sue had shoulder surgery, once again Safe at Home moved in with many helpers. To this day Ryan, Suzi, Luisa, and others continuously offer help, advice and whose kindness is 100% percent there. Sue looks forward to her future with Safe at Home, especially with Janet and Mary by her side.
“I am pleased to have my family know I have sound care, and that my husband Jim’s purchase of a plan for that care was a resounding success. Thank you.”
