Tustin, CA (September 2017) The Groves of Tustin, a local senior living community, is celebrating its Vibrant Life® program with a recipient of “This is Your Life.” Resident Virginia Perez was born in Los Angeles California in 1927 to Gabriela and Bartolomeo. She was 1 of 10 kids that were raised in Long Beach. She helped her family open and run a Mexican food restaurant for several years. In 1946 she married Joe Perez and together they had 5 kids. Jonette, James, Michael, Pam and Nancy. A caring housewife, she spent most of her time ensuring her family was well taken care of.
Later on in life she became a hairdresser, but she returned back to doing what she loved, caring for her family. Once her kids had children, she helped take care of them also!
One of her favorite things to do was to garden, most especially her roses.
These days Virginia enjoys spending time with her family, but also her friend Inez whom she met here at The Groves. She loves a good piece of pizza and the musical performances in our parlor.
Virginia is shy at first, but once you get to know her she will greet you with her beautiful smile!
