New Residents: Bill and Carolyn Shomber
New residents Bill and Carolyn Shomber moved to Aberdeen Village in July and are looking forward to continuing to get to know their friends and neighbors.
“Everything seems to be great, said Carolyn. “We are settling in and feel pretty comfortable here.”
She said the continuum of care and services offered at the community have already come in handy.
“Both of us have had to have therapy which has been really great to have them come in and do it right here in the apartment.”
Bill Shomber worked for the railroad and retired after many years as an over the road engineer. He and Carolyn raised one son and three daughters and now have nine grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.
After their children grew up, Carolyn went back to college and got her master’s degree in special education. She didn’t teach very long, however, before she decided to baby sit her grandkids, which eventually led her to start a daycare.
“The love of my life was being able to take care of little ones. I’m still close with a lot of the families of the kids I babysat.”
The couple also enjoyed traveling over the years, including two trips to Spain, the British Isles and two riverboat cruises.
