July 2014: Outreach Newsletter

  1. 1. Favorite childhood memories were of going to the country club where she could swim, ride her bike, and swing on the big swing. She was not a fan, however, of ice skating. She claimed her ankles were too weak and it was far too cold. When asked what she liked best about being retired, Sally quickly informed us that retirement definitely doesn’t give you more time. But it does allow you more choice of what to do with the time you have. It sounds like Sally keeps very busy and will continue to do so in the future! If you would like us to get to know you better, we would love to come and interview you. Please give us a call at 614-259-5034. Sally Lefler has been a resident of Friendship Village for about a year, but she has lived in Ohio most of her life. She and her husband met while they were both students at Asbury College (now a university) in Kentucky. He has since passed but they had 56 years together. They raised four children, two boys and two girls. Both girls were adopted. She is also a grandmother 14 times over and has 5 great grandchildren. The thing she is most proud of in her life is her family. “How blessed I have been,” she stated. Some of Sally’s favorite past times are evident in her apartment. She enjoys handcrafts, reading and birding. She likes being out in nature and has volunteered for the Metro Park system for many years, specifically at Blendon Woods and Sharon Woods. Quite the world traveler, the only places Sally has not been are the Antarctica and Africa. We wish we could have stayed there all afternoon and listened to the tales of her travels. She has visited China, Israel, Brazil and all over Europe. Her favorite destinations were Scandinavia and Alaska. While in Brazil, she visited a former exchange student and attended his wedding! When asked if she could visit anywhere else in the world, where would that be, Sally replied, “Victoria Falls.” Introducing: Sally Lefler Wester ville Public Librar y The Outreach J u l y / A u g u s t 2 0 1 4N e w s l e t t e r 6 4  Patron Interview  Did You Know?  Global Art  Upcoming Events  Staff Picks
