Dress-making hobby goes international Story by Lois A. Pflum | Photos submitted
nspiration from a television show three years ago gave Jean Killinger, 70, of Fond du Lac an idea. It was a good reason to quit smoking. For about two years, she decided to knit hats and caps for the clients of the Solution Center because, “I needed something to do with my fingers.” “It’s all his fault,” she joked, referring to the support and encouragement of her husband, Gerald, in regard to knitting the hats and caps. Jean was born in Fond du Lac and lived here until she was 15 years old. At that time, she was in junior high school, and moved north to Glidden, Wis. She graduated from Glidden High School in 1962, and married Gerald in 1963. After one year of marriage, she and Gerald moved back to Fond du Lac, where he found employment. Jean attended and graduated from MPTC as a licensed practical nurse (LPN). Later she completed requirements for a registered nurse and graduated from MPTC as a RN. Jean’s professional career consisted of working at St. Francis Nursing Home as an LPN for four years, and then 19 years at St. Agnes Hospital (Agnesian Healthcare), working on the cardiac, oncology and medical units, with her final years there in the intensive care unit as a case manager. Jean officially retired at 62 years of age, and first became interested in quilting in those early retirement years. Although Jean admitted to taking sewing lessons in middle school and just one year in high school, she decided to undertake a very worthwhile project. About that time, she contacted Nancy’s Notions store in Beaver Dam. Jean requested a special pattern, which in turn was emailed to her. It was then Jean began in earnest to massproduce little colorful dresses in sizes 3 to 12. On her trusted Singer sewing machine, she created 100 plus dresses in the first year, followed by over 80 dresses the following year and then the next year she sewed 50 more dresses. Jean noted the first year, 25 of her special creations were sent to Haiti, after the big earthquake. An acquaintance delivered the dresses when she went on a church-sponsored mission trip to an orphanage. In the beginning of her project, Jean purchased a lot of the material herself by taking advantage of some great sales at Jo-Ann Fabrics. Then word of

mouth got around and before she knew it, Jean was the recipient of a lot of material and notions for her project. Barbara Lent and Kathy Simon and their friends in their quilting group got involved and helped collect more material for her. It was through Barbara and her involvement with United Hearts for Health, that the colorful dresses were distributed to clients at a medical clinic in Rosita, Nicaragua. Both Barbara and John Lent, along with many other local people from Fond du Lac, make an annual mission trip to Rosita. Jean commented, “Once, two complete strangers even offered me money for my project.” Jean added, “I was really touched.” Jean uses her own variations to make these dresses special and sometimes uses even the smallest pieces of material to individualize the dresses.
Soon Jean will resort to her improvised work room, which also serves as the laundry room, and will be turning the dining room table into a cutting area, and once again her sewing machine will be getting a good workout. Jean and Gerald are members of Holy Family Parish, and are empty nesters. She added, “Noah, really a mutt/Jack Russell type, is the love of our lives.” They are parents to three adult children and grandparents to six. While Jean has never been to Rosita, she has indirectly received many thanks for her wonderful efforts of making the dresses. Future goals are to stay healthy and keep up with her current involvements which include quilting, gardening, traveling, reading mysteries, going to the “Y” and playing cards at the senior center. She added, “We still have a big garden and together we put up a lot of jelly and jam.”

The page also offers links to publications, such as “Your Payments While You Are Outside The United States,” which explains how your benefits may be affected and other important information you need to know about receiving Social Security benefits while outside the country. If you receive Social Security benefits as a dependent or survivor there are additional United States residency requirements that may affect your benefit payments while you are outside the United States. There are different provisions for anyone receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Once you have been outside the United States for 30 or more days in a row,

Free time â€” a bonus when traveling Valerie and Wayne Graczyk
We are already looking forward to â€œfree timeâ€? adventures when we are in Greece in April; Alaska in August; and Prague, Budapest and Vienna in September, 2014. Visit somedaytravel.com for information.
fter leading many trips to Europe, Wayne and I know our travelers need space and time to be on their own when traveling with a group. We strive to be done with our formal touring by 5 p.m. each day which in turn means returning to the hotel with a full evening to do whatever individuals like. We also include free afternoons for our travelerâ€™s convenience. Of course, Wayne and I donâ€™t want anyone left sitting in the hotel alone because they â€œdonâ€™t feel comfortable exploring on their own.â€? Each day we announce our plans and invite others to join us. Often times a smaller group of travelers will gather in the lobby and will all walk over to a neighborhood restaurant for dinner. For Wayne and I this time is very special and relaxing as well.
Some of our travelers joined us for a play. After the play, two women in group, both in their 80s, invited us to the hotel lounge for a snack and a drink. The three of us younger women looked at them and said we were exhausted and had to get our sleep. The next day our two adventurers shared that not only did they enjoy themselves,
but a man from Scotland insisted on paying for a drink. We all had a great laugh and they were very pleased with themselves.
A group of our travelers booked a dinner show to watch Flamingo dancing. It was spellbinding â€“ we could not take our eyes off the dancers who were so fiercely disciplined in their steps and routines. The music was raw, a lamenting of the soul and full of pain, yet thoroughly breathtaking. I had never experienced anything like it.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening at an Edinburgh concert hall enjoying the National Orchestra of Scotland. I happened to be sitting next to a retired school teacher who attended all their concerts. She was very interested in hearing about our travel group so I had double the fun. I enjoyed the concert and my conversation with her.
This past spring we led a group to England and had an overnight in Stratford Upon Avon, Shakespeareâ€™s birthplace. After touring the house he was born in, we toured Anne Hathawayâ€™s Cottage, Shakespeareâ€™s wifeâ€™s home which was surrounded by beautiful gardens. A group of us decided to attend a Shakespeare play. Unfortunately, the play turned out to be very violent. In fact, a number of us left at intermission but many stayed and shared that they were happy they did. While it was not my type of entertainment, I again felt I stretched myself a bit and that isnâ€™t always a bad thing when you travel into another country with their different cultures. Free time is included in all of our trips and can be an opportunity to enhance your knowledge of another culture. When planning to take a trip, be sure the itinerary includes time for you to personally experience the country youâ€™re in and that you are free to explore and enjoy on your own.
We saw a poster announcing a concert for that evening at St. Nicholas church located on their infamous square. We were seated under a huge crystal chandelier in this magnificent setting listening to the most beautiful brass horn concert. I was moved to tears with the beauty of the setting and music.
We stayed in Lucca, Italy, the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini. We toured his home and attended a concert in the church where Puccini played organ as a young man. We listened to opera singers perform pieces written by Puccini. One song that touched me deeply was from his opera â€œMadame Butterfly.â€? After the concert we walked onto a town square and watched couples dancing the tango to live music under the stars â€“ a surreal experience!

GRANCARE REHABILITATION CENTER
“Following recent injuries and surgery I needed rehab to help me get back on my feet. I had a prior stay at Grancare, using my Medicare days at a place providing outcome-focused care with emphasis on discharge-to-home.”
I was sure glad Grancare had an opening for me to rehab in a large private room with a 46” ﬂat screen TV. Excellent therapy and compassionate staff got me ﬁxed up so I could join my family in Florida before Christmas!
