Resident of the Month

Jeanne Graeser

February 2019

Jeanne Graeser, affectionately known as “Granny”, is the mother of two sons and two daughters with numerous grandchildren. She began working with physically challenged children utilizing equestrian therapy. She has volunteered with the Special Olympics since its inception on the Coast. While Granny enjoyed working at Walmart as a customer service representative and greeter, she also gathered items to send to troops overseas. Upon the soldier’s return, Granny noticed veterans would talk to her about their war traumas. As interest grew, she began serving those with PSTD organizing fishing trips, rodeos, cook outs, and speaking for those who could not speak for themselves. Granny has earned the title of “Granny” from all the soldiers and friends at Walmart. Here at the Woodland Village, she comforts and consoles all that cross her path!
