Meet our lovely Waterford Resident, Betty! Betty is a Chicago native, born on June 2, 1929 to parents Lucia and John Scheiflinger. Lucia and John had immigrated to Chicago previous to having their family, including Betty, her sister Alvine, and her brother John. Betty grew up playing the piano and working hard in school, eventually attending Wilson Junior College in Chicago, completing her education through her second year of college there. Later, she began working as a manager of a local hardware store, a job she maintained for nine long years. During this time, Betty met her husband at age 24 at a dance gathering with friends. Mr. and Mrs. Ruzich celebrated 52 years of marriage, and their family expanded as they welcomed five children, five grandchildren, and eventually one great-grandchild.
Betty enjoys being involved in the activities at Waterford Estates, including exercise, bingo, arts & crafts, outings, and, of course, the beauty shop. She enjoys participating in the various activities and getting to know her fellow Waterford Estates residents. She also thinks that the staff is wonderful! We are so glad to have Betty as a part of our community.
