Ginny Geis Turned 99 on August 3rd, Making Her The Most Senior Resident at Monarch Landing In Naperville, IL

(PRWEB) August 13, 2014

Crediting her longevity to good genes, a positive attitude and a busy life, Virginia (Ginny) Geis was very excited to celebrate her birthday with family and friends. It was definitely an auspicious occasion. Although she appears to be decades younger, Ginny turned 99 on August 3rd, making her the most senior resident at Monarch Landing.

Ginny lived in her home in Naperville until about five years ago and was frequently an invited guest at Monarch Landing marketing events. Id come over and theyd give me free lunch, she said. For a long while she didnt really consider moving in, but enjoyed being wooed and fed. When she learned that some women she knew from Naperville had moved in and were loving it, she reconsidered. I thought if it was good enough for them and they loved it, it was good enough for me, she said. Ginnys been delighted with her decision ever since.

Although having some vision problems, Ginny is extremely independent and in excellent health. Shes also busy. I play card games and when there are special programs, I attend. Theres a big fitness program that Im involved with, and Im a swimmer, she said. If shes not otherwise involved, Ginnys likely to have some sort of puzzle in her hands.

The walls of Ginnys bright and sunshine filled apartment are covered with colorful artwork. Years ago, Ginny took art classes at College of DuPage. Our instructor said never throw your artwork away. You may be famous some day, she recalled. So I kept putting all of my work under my bed. When I moved here I decided not to throw it away. When I got here I thought, now what am I going to do with this? I decided to hang it on my walls.

Citing what she loves best about living at Monarch Landing, Ginny said, All of the people are so friendly. The residents and the staff; everybody. And the food is excellent.

Ginny has four children, 14 grandchildren and a lot of great-grandchildren. There was family from all over the country to celebrate my birthday at an area country club. Someone came from Washington State, and several came from the east coast, she said. There were probably 75 people there. It was a pretty big deal.

Looking back at her life, Ginny said, I just think Im very fortunate. I have a wonderful family, good experiences in life, and good friends Ive made along the way.
