Kathryn C., 92, St. Joe, AR

Kathryn Crombie, a resident of St. Joe, Arkansas, had her wish to return to her hometown of Ralston, Nebraska one more time granted.  Kathryn, who turned 92 on March 14th, grew up in Nebraska, but hasn’t been able to return in over 80 years.  She has always been very fascinated with her family heritage and history and spends hours looking through old photos dating back to the 1920s. Kathryn has many fond memories of growing up in the Ralston/Omaha area and would love to revisit her old school in particular, Brownell-Talbot School. Her wish came true when she and her son, Rich Crombie, traveled from Arkansas to Nebraska March 27th through 29th. Among the stops on their trip down memory lane were a visit to Brownell-Talbot School in Omaha where they will receive a special welcome and tour with current students, a meet and greet with the Mayor Donald Groesser of Ralston and a stop at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.  Kathryn was born in Lincoln, Nebraska where many of her family roots are: her relatives lived there, went to school there and are buried there. In addition, her father was a prominent student and member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity member in 1920 at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln Later, her family moved to Ralston and her father commuted to Omaha, working in the insurance business with the Woodmen of The World in Omaha Association. Her parents enrolled Crombie in the Brownell-Talbot School in Omaha. Their memory lane tour encompassed these three towns in southeastern Nebraska.

The residents of Skyland Care love gospel music!  Their Activities Director would love to plan a trip for them to see one of their favorite bands in concert, but many of the 94 residents can no longer travel.  We want to bring a concert to them in May instead! This would be such a great way to celebrate Skilled Nursing Home Week and our annual Week of Wishes.  We need to raise $1,000 to cover the travel costs for the legendary Chuck Wagon Gang Band to perform at their facility.  Please donate today to make these residents wish come true!
