Meet Diane Keeney, Traditions’ October Resident of the Month! Diane was born in Cleveland, but grew up in Brook Park, Ohio, a quaint Cleveland suburb.
Diane has called Grove City Senior Living by Traditions home for the last 4 months stating, “I chose Grove City because of how fresh and clean the community is. The staff here is so friendly and caring, and I’m incredibly thankful for them. All the staff go above and beyond anything I’ve ever seen in my life.”
Diane has 4 grown children, 2 sons and 2 daughters, and 8 beautiful grandchildren. When she isn’t spending time with her family, she enjoys Grove City’s ‘Get to Know Your Neighbor’ activity.
“I love hearing about other peoples’ lives and getting to know them on a deeper basis.”
Prior to retirement, Diane worked in a doctor’s office as a receptionist. She also did billing and collections.
“Now that I’m retired, I’d love to pursue two of my passions – writing and reading. I want to write a book entitled, How Do People Do This about life and how great God has been to me. The book would be geared toward people who don’t know God but want to learn how to know him on a more meaningful level.”
Diane continued, “I want to continue working on my passion of cooking too; I used to be a caterer. I must admit, I’m a huge fan of Chef Shari’s meatloaf with mashed potatoes.”
“We nominated Diane for Traditions’ Resident of the Month because she embodies warmth and kindness,” stated Lisa Graves, Grove City’s Executive Director, “She never hesitates to welcome a new resident and make them feel at home.”
