  • 1. March 2014 THE{FULL}LIFE TOUCHMARK AT COFFEE CREEK Introducing a champion Each Touchmark community is nominating several residents for the International Council on Active Aging’s Champion program, part of the organization’s Changing the Way we Age Campaign. This month, meet Champion Katy Winn. Katy lives out her passion for staying active and connecting with others. She visits with residents who live in Touchmark’s Prairieview Memory Care neighborhoods. “I love to connect with others,” she says. Katy has been an active member of the Touchmark community for the past two-and-ahalf years, reflected in her recently receiving the Resident of the Month award. To maintain her involvement, Katy keeps fit with a regular exercise regimen, which includes walking all neighborhoods in the community each evening. She uses the stairs and even does wall push-ups prior to entering another floor. “Katy is an extremely passionate and intelligent person,” says Life Enrichment/Wellness Director Carla Scull. “She offers companionship and a genuine friendship to everyone she meets while staying active in the Touchmark community.” Katy is also a dog lover and was extremely fond of her beloved dog, Jeff, the Husky. Family memories and connections Born in Akins, Okla., in 1927 on Easter Sunday, Katy has lived most of her life in Tulsa. “I have fond memories of being raised by a family of strong women (mother and aunts),” she says. Katy attended Oklahoma State University prior to spending most of her career as an engineering secretary working with dozens of field engineers. She has been blessed with two sons, John Michael and James Steven. During their 25-year marriage, Katy and her husband, Fred, enjoyed many activities and hobbies. One of their favorites was to spend time at their house on Lake Eufaula boating, fishing, and relaxing. They both stayed involved in their church, Asbury United Methodist Church in Tulsa. It was there that Katy did her in-depth training as part of the Stephen Ministry program. Since her training, she has enjoyed close to 30 years of “visiting and listening wherever the church sent me.” Visiting, listening, and serving— clearly her lifelong passions—and the qualities of a true champion.
