RESIDENT OF THE MONTH APRIL 2024

Meet Sandy Nolting, Traditions' April Resident of the Month! 

Sandy was born in Indianapolis and raised just south of the Indiana capital in Shelby County, Indiana. 

Sandy has lived at Traditions of Columbus for nearly six months. She says, "The residents here are so friendly. Our community just has such a homey feeling, which is exactly what I was looking for when choosing a senior living community."

Before retiring and moving to Traditions of Columbus, Sandy was a secretary at Cummins and worked in the guidance counselors' office at Hauser Junior/Senior High School in Hope, Indiana.

"I was married to my wonderful husband, Jack, for 67 years; he passed away on July 5, 2023. We have three amazing children, Cindy, Kenny, and Terry, and seven grandchildren – Cassie, Bryce, Keshia, Tyrone, Tevin, Autumn, and Kendall. I am also fortunate to have seventeen great-grandchildren!" 

When we asked Sandy what her favorite hobby is, she answered, "Cooking for my family! Oh, and I also love quilting!"

Given her love of cooking, we asked her what meal she enjoys most at Traditions of Columbus. She replied, "Chef's biscuits and gravy, of course!"

Besides the biscuits and gravy at Traditions of Columbus, Sandy loves staying active by participating in the community's group exercise classes.

"I have made some great friends here. I feel so at home at Traditions of Columbus."

"It is Traditions' good fortune to have Sandy in our community," said Stacey Gallardo, Traditions of Columbus Executive Director. "She is such a positive person who always has a smile on her face and a kind word to say - except about Purdue 😊. We attribute those qualities to her many dedicated years in education."
