Geneva Rooks was an inspiration to so many people. Tragically, she died in a house fire, shortly before her planned move to an independent living community.
Vowing that older adults should always be supported with resources to ensure their safety, Rosemary and Mike Wick, close friends of Geneva and founders of the Friends of St. Andrew’s, established Geneva’s Friends. Restricted to the support of individuals 62 or older with incomes less than $11,000 annually, this endowed fund seeks contributions from donors committed to providing a permanent source of income for assessment, referral and supportive care, including minor home repairs.
