January has just flown by and here we are, already into February. We
continue to work hard on our newsletter but we always seem to get it out
late. I want to apologize for that. It takes a couple department managers
to gather their information to get this out to you and most of the time it is
I, that holds up the last piece. Because of this, we would like to offer to
email our activity calendar to anyone that would like to get this as soon
as possible.
I want to thank the family members that have requested this piece to be
sent through email. What a great idea! If you want to be on this list just
send an email to [email protected] with “request activity
Calendar“ in the subject line and we will make sure to get these out to
you.
Thank you all for your patience and we sincerely appreciate your
suggestions!
Have a great month!
Diane

DIRECTIONS
In a medium bowl, mix together cookie crumbs, 3
tablespoons sugar, and melted butter. Press mixture
into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan.
Please RSVP to Kylynn or sign up on the RSVP sheet
on the activities room window if you plan to attend the
Independent Luncheon at noon on February 20th.
In a saucepan, combine raspberries, 2 tablespoons
sugar, cornstarch, and water. Bring to boil, and continue
boiling 5 minutes, or until sauce is thick. Strain sauce
through a mesh strainer to remove seeds.
Now that the dining room has more seating, you guys
are welcome to come for lunch at anytime between
11:30 and 1:00. Please remember to wait to be seated
by our lovely kitchen staff. Thanks!
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). In a
metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, melt white
chocolate chips with half-and-half, stirring occasionally
until smooth.
In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese and 1/2 cup
sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time. Blend in
vanilla and melted white chocolate. Pour half of batter
over crust. Spoon 3 tablespoons raspberry sauce over
batter. Pour remaining cheesecake batter into pan,
and again spoon 3 tablespoons raspberry sauce over
the top. Swirl batter with the tip of a knife to create a
marbled effect.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until filling is set. Cool,
cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 8 hours
before removing from pan. Serve with remaining
raspberry sauce.

February Employee
of the Month
February Assisted Living
Resident of the Month
Vanessa moved
here from
Littleton, CO with
her family when
she was 12 years
old. Her parents
wanted to get out
of the city and
her grandparents
lived here. After
graduating from
Olathe High
School, Vanessa
went to school to
get her nursing
license and she
got married. Her and her husband John have been
married for 7 years and had their first baby girl in May.
Little Delainey takes up 95% of her time, but she says,
“It’s totally worth it and it’s awesome. I wouldn’t have
it any other way”. The other 5% of her free time she
likes to cook, and spend time with her family. John
works as a plumber for her dad’s plumbing business.
This month marks Vanessa’s 4th year as the Resident
Director at Crossroads. The best part about her job
is all the residents. They make her smile. Vanessa
says, “Its also great having great co-workers”.
Vanessa, thank you for all you do for Crossroads and
the residents. You are such a blessing and we are so
lucky to have you here.
Norma was brought
into this world in
Archuleta County
before moving to
Covina, California.
This is where her
and her younger
sister, Claudia grew
up. They really
enjoyed playing
with dolls when
they were younger.
Claudia still lives in
California. After high
school Norma got
married. Her and
her husband had two girls; Mary and Sherri. Norma
and her husband lived in California until his passing
several years ago. She then moved to Delta to be
closer to her daughter. In Norma’s working years, she
kept busy by being a Real Estate Broker. She really
loved her job and enjoyed every part of it. Norma used
to go fishing a lot, which was one of her favorite parts
of living in Colorado. Norma likes to paint and read
books. She also enjoys walking as much as her feet
will allow her to. Sherri and Mary both have one child,
making Norma a lucky grandma of two. If you ever
see Norma in the hallway, she gives really good hugs!
Norma, you are so nice to everyone around you and
you are so caring. You are always looking beautiful in
your pretty shirts.

February Independent Living
Resident of the Month
Audrey Myers
New Residents
Independent Living
A few of us are not Delta natives and had a long car
ride to get here. For Audrey, she spent 10 days on a
ship followed by two train rides before she made it to
Eckert. She traveled all the way from England in 1946
to be with her husband Jim. Her and Jim met while
he was stationed in her hometown during the war.
Audrey grew up in a small fishing town. During the
war there were no private cars, but there was a good
bus system and they rode their bikes around a lot as
well. Audrey was a young lady of 20 years when Jim
swept her off her feet and brought her to Eckert. She
recalls being sick for a couple days on the ship to New
York. There were many young women from that ship
on her train to Chicago and there were only 3 of them
on the train to Denver. There were several things those
ladies had never seen before and one of those things
were tea bags. Jim grew up in Eckert on a family farm
where they raised beef cattle and grew hay and corn.
Jim and Audrey spent about 60 years on that farm
together. Audrey has been a resident of Crossroads
for over a year now. She enjoys eating lunch with
everyone, taking walks, and knitting. Audrey, you are
such a sweet lady. We love having you as part of our
Crossroads family!

WELCOMING 2015
It has been tradition world wide to drop an item to
bring in the New Year. Many cities drop fruit, and
that is what we did here. We said good-bye to 2014
and hello to 2015 with snacks, champagne, sparkling
cider, and the drop of an orange.
QUILT SHOW
S&B Quilters brought quilts to share with our
residents as a preview to their Cabin Fever Quilt Show
in March. The club was delighted when some of our
residents brought their quilts and told their stories.
Each quilt has a history and has a story. The mutual
sharing of quilting memories and achievements made
for a pleasant and inspiring gathering. S&B’s mission
is “…to promote quilting, and to expand and enhance
knowledge and enjoyment of quilting and quilting
techniques in an atmosphere of sharing fellowship”.
You can find out more information about S&B Quilters
through their Facebook page or their website.
TURQUOISE POTATO NECKLACES
This craft is one of the residents’ favorites. The
process starts with the pealing, cutting, and drying
of potatoes. Once the potatoes have dehydrated it is
time to paint them with different shades of turquoise.
As soon as the paint is dry the potato beads are
strung onto a necklace and Waa-laa, you have a
fancy turquoise potato necklace. You can find these
handmade necklaces for sale during our Annual Craft
Sale in November.
MEMORY CARE PROGRESS
Every month there is visible progress on the memory
care building. The project is projected to be open
this spring. This new addition to Crossroads will
be assisted living that specializes in dementia and
Alzheimer’s care and it will be a secured building.
We will be excited to show off the beautiful building
when it is finished so keep an eye out for our grand
opening.
