Meet Fred And Gerry Jelonek Fred and Gerry Jelonek, our 3rd and 4th residents, initially came to Franklin to be closer to their family. They were introduced to the Fountains of Franklin by their children, who watched the construction of the building. After touring the facility, the children were convinced that the Fountains was the perfect new home for Fred and Gerry. So, on June 14, 2013, they became the Fountains’ first married couple! Fred and Gerry both grew up in Dunkirk, New York, a small town located on Lake Erie, about 50 miles south of Buffalo, New York. Attending high school together, they met through mutual friends. Now married for 66 years, Fred and Gerry have been together since their senior year in high school. During World War II, they both worked at Allegheny Steel Company, with Gerry working in payroll and Fred working in the wire mill. In 1945, Fred entered nursing school at St. Lawrence State Hospital in Ogdensburg, New York. Fred became a registered nurse and worked at the Buffalo Psychiatric Center for 35 years. During his employment, he participated in the opening of the Detox and Rehabilitation Center. This center was one of the first created in Buffalo and western New York. In his spare time, Fred served as a volunteer fireman for 25 years. The fire hall was located next door to his house, making it very convenient. Of course, Fred was always the first one to respond! Living in the same house for 35 hears, Gerry raised four children and loved being a mom and homemaker. Knitting and sewing were two of her talents and resulted in many types of clothing for her children (i.e. hats, baby clothes, blankets, booties and mittens). Gerry and Fred enjoyed their weekends camping, hiking and cooking hot dogs over an open fire with the children. Family vacations were very important to their close knit family. One of their fondest humorous memories was the time that Gerry made Fred some Argyle socks. The socks were very popular at the time, but Fred refused to wear them. They were eventually passed along to their son, and are now encased in a frame in their son’s house! In conclusion, Gerry says that she loves living at the Fountains because she doesn’t have to cook! She feels as though she is on a permanent vacation. But most of all, she and Fred are happy to be close their children and grandchildren. We are so happy to have the Jeloneks as a part of our Fountains’ family! Make sure to ‘like’ the Fountains of Franklin facebook page!
