| Community: Emerald Pointe

Thank you to The Holman Family for making Emerald Pointe your home!

We not only have the distinct privilege but the great honor to introduce Tom, Mary and Evelyn Holman as our Resident Spotlight this month.  Since July of 2013 the Holman’s selected Emerald Pointe to be their new home.  The Holman’s are all marvelous examples of lives well lived.

Back in April of 2013, Tom and Sue corresponded via email after Tom selected the Lang Nelson website to find the perfect home for his mother, Evelyn and his wife Mary.  During the interview process Sue was enlightened to find out that Evelyn was born and raised in Chicago, then moved to California and ended up here in Minnesota.  (We are so happy that she ended up in Minnesota!)

Evelyn worked as a secretary for the Ordnance Department of the United States and has been a widow for 32 years.  That marriage brought 6 children, 7 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Evelyn loves to read fiction books and watch television shows such as Jeopardy.  I asked Evelyn what advice she could give to me and her quick reply was OPEN COMMUNICATION.

Tom and Mary met during school, both graduating from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, as teachers.  Tom taught junior high math and Mary music in elementary/junior high.  Back in 1981 they both started employment with Wycliffe Bible Translators and have been active with them ever since in Ghana and Nigeria, West Africa. Tom enjoys all sports, his favorite being baseball.  Mary enjoys reading and bird watching.  Together they enjoy cross country skiing, walking and hiking.

When asking them why they picked Emerald Pointe, many reasons were given.  Our community was multi family, our split floor plan, close to church, elevators, underground heated garage and especially having an employee living on site.  So again, we are so happy to have met such a loving family.  We sure can tell that Evelyn did such a great job on raising her children.  They are all fine examples of children loving and protecting their mother.
