Meet Jolene Cunico, our assisted living resident of the month at Melody Living! We love getting to know each of our residents here at Melody Living and we hope you enjoy getting to know more about Jolene.
Jolene was born and raised in Trinidad, Colorado. She attended Trinidad High School and Pikes Peak Community College. Jolene and her husband, John, were married for 49 years before he passed away in 2018.
They had two children together, a daughter, Dannette, and a son, Brian. Jolene has two grandsons and a few ‘bonus’ kids and grandkids who are also part of her family. She has 2 younger sisters, Donna and Cheryl, who live nearby in Colorado Springs.
Jolene was a stay-at-home mom raising her kids before she became a school librarian in Colorado Springs School District Eleven. She worked at Martinez Elementary until she retired. She was a computer guru and would often be called on to train others in her job. Jolene even won several awards for her work as a school librarian.
She is a fantastic bowler and went to several bowling tournaments in the 80s. She’s traveled to Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, and all over the United States. Her favorite trips were the cruises she took with her late husband, John.
Jolene’s greatest accomplishment is raising her children and taking care of her grandchildren. She also was a Volunteer Cuddler for the NICU at Memorial Hospital for over 15 years. Her favorite holiday is Christmas and she loves to dance and color.
Her family helped Jolene choose Melody Living because of the friendly staff. Jolene actually met a couple of residents while she was touring and they became instant friends. Her favorite things about Melody Living are the social activities, field trips, and music performances.
Jolene’s advice is to “Always tell your loved ones how much you love them. Never take a day for granted.”
We hope you join us and discover a Life in Harmony™ like Jolene has at Melody Living assisted living community in Colorado Springs. Give us a call today at 719.960.4005 to schedule a tour or visit our contact page to learn more.
