Our People

Assisted Living and Memory Care

Meet Gloria

Gloria was born in Springfield, Illinois and lived in Indiana from 1970 to 2016 with her husband, Howard. They were married for 48 years and had three children and seven grandchildren. Before moving to Spring Park, Gloria was a child advocate who worked with kids that were taken away from their families. Her husband served in the Army. Her most exciting memories are from traveling with her husband throughout their lives.

One of her fondest memories is meeting President Eisenhower. She even had the opportunity to shake his hand and say hello to him!

Gloria loves music, arts and crafts, reading mysteries and nonfiction books and basketball. Her favorite movie is “From Here to Eternity” and she enjoys watching CNN.

She moved into Spring Park three years ago to be close to her son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons. Gloria has been the Resident Council President now for 2 years and we are lucky to have her. Thanks for everything you do Gloria! 

Meet Elizabeth

Elizabeth is 17 years old and a high school senior at Travelers Rest. She loves spending her time serving others. In addition to working at Spring Park, she is CPR certified and an EMS Explorer with Greenville County EMS. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and loves taking adventures during the summer. Congratulations Elizabeth!

Meet Peggy

Peggy was born in Oldham County, Kentucky. When Peggy was a teenager, her father died, and Peggy’s mother moved to Louisville to obtain work to support the family. After graduating high school, Peggy attended Georgetown College to study music, but she eventually changed her major to business in order to secure employment.

It was at Georgetown that she met her husband, Conrad. Peggy and her husband raised two daughters and a son in the village of Gurnee, Illinois. Peggy’s two passions of music and sports were showered on her children who became involved in music and dance. Peggy participated in several bowling leagues and encouraged her children to become involved in youth bowling leagues. She and her oldest daughter competed in many mother-and-daughter bowling tournaments where they made a competitive pair.  

Peggy’s grandchildren spent a great amount of time with her and are still very close to her today. Eventually, after the death of her husband and due to health issues, Peggy moved in with her youngest daughter in South Carolina. She became active in their local church by singing in the choir, and she enjoyed many wonderful years of church trips and girls-only trips with her daughters and granddaughters, visiting the mountains and the beaches. She also joined a senior bowling league and continued bowling into her 80s!

Peggy has made a new home at Spring Park where she has become good friends with other residents and staff.

Meet Lauren

Lauren lives in Travelers Rest with her little girl, Kylee, and loves to spend her free time diamond painting and hanging out with family and friends.

Meet Joanne

Joanne has worked for Spring Park for a year now. She is from North Carolina and has been married for 50 years to her husband, John. They have 5 children, 17 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.

She has always wanted to play the piano and loves singing, even though she says she can’t sing. Her favorite sport is baseball and in her spare time she enjoys sewing and fishing. One of her most exciting memories was when she caught a 5 pound bass!  Another memorable moment for her is the time she met the actor Kevin Costner.

One of her goals at work is to take three of her memory care residents on a shopping trip and spend $20 on each one of them. Last Christmas she went out of her way to get all of her staff a present. 

Joanne has the biggest heart and we love her for it. Congratulations Joanne!
