Ce is a long-time Capitola resident who has lived here since 1945! Ce is a fun-loving outgoing woman who has had more than her fair share of hobbies and adventures. To call her an “adventurer” would be an understatement!
Ce and her husband “Babe” met one afternoon at the Ice-Skating Rink. They were married on September 23, 1939 in Stockton, California. Ce and her husband were married by the same minister who performed the ceremony for her parents and grandparents. Several years later, they moved to Capitola where they remained and shared many fun hobbies and activities together. They went on to bowl competitively together while participating in two tournaments in California (Ce nearly bowled a 300!). Aside from bowling, Ce was an avid Ice Skater, Volleyball Player and Golfer. She spent many afternoons golfing at DeLaveaga golf course; first on their 9-hole course then later graduating on to the 18-hole course. Seeking thrills, Ce and her husband took up “jeeping”, the sport of driving off-road vehicles over rough terrain. The pair also took up square dancing, which they did as partners for 25 years, traveling to many interesting destinations along the way!
Today, Ce enjoys spending time with her family (including her Son, Daughter, Grand Children, and Four Great Grandchildren) her dog “Prissy” (whom she makes gourmet meals for) and visiting her local Greybears and Mid-County Senior Center.
Professional Home Care Aide
Ce first came to Safe at Home Senior Care at the insistence of her family members who felt she would be safer with the assistance of a skilled, trained, professional home care aide. The family knew Safe at Home’s founder, Steve Glenn, through his affiliation with Capitola/Soquel little league. Ce admits, she was a little reluctant to receive professional in-home care initially because she has been such an independent person throughout her entire life and was not ready to let go of that independence. However, once she interviewed her companion aide and got to know that individual she became more comfortable and accepting of the new situation.
Today, Ce and her care provider Helen enjoy a regular afternoon visits together several days a week. Ce and Helen have formed a tight bond with one another that allows Ce to maintain her dignity and independence while receiving the support she needs to remain safe and comfortable in her own home.
