November 19: RESIDENT SPOTLIGHT: BONNIE AND JERRY BECKER
Bonnie and her husband, Jerry, are no strangers to new surroundings. Before making their move to Summit Vista, the two of them spent time living in several places all over the country, including Vermont (where Bonnie was born), Michigan (where Jerry was born), Utah, California, and Florida.
The Beckers are enjoying retirement and eager to begin this new chapter in their lives. They’re especially excited to take advantage of the unhindered access to activities, amenities, great food and socializing available in their new Summit Vista community. Bonnie and Jerry have two kids, three grandkids, and three great grandkids.
