Jeannine F., 84, Erie, PA

Jeanine Filipowski, a resident of Ball Pavilion Nursing Home in Erie, had her wish to see a live performance of “Dancing with the Stars” granted, thanks to the Erie chapter of Twilight Wish Foundation.  Filipowski, 84, and her daughter, Rebecca, watch “Dancing with the Stars” together every week.  Ballroom dancing has a special place in Filipowski’s heart because she met her late husband in a dance hall in Clarion, Pennsylvania. Filipowski was very involved in her community volunteering at Our Lady of Peace School, in the Rosary Society at Our Lady of Peace Church, and was president of the Board of Directors in the East Erie Turners Social Club. Not only was her wish granted on Wednesday, June 24, 2015, but she met her favorite dancer, Val Chmerkovskiy.
