Myrtle (Peay) Givens

A typical day for Myrtle starts out with a prayer to the Lord, thanking him for allowing her another day.

Myrtle was born on May 8, 1926.  She grew up here, in Morgantown, with her 12 siblings.  She went on to marry the love of her life, Wilma Givens; they were married for 64 years.  They have 2 children, Charlene and Tim.  The family moved to Indiana for ten years, then moved back to Kentucky to be with family.  Myrtle retired from Peabody Coal Company as a cleaner, she described the job as rewarding.

Her hobbies include: sewing, reading, and being around her 5 children and 7 great grandchildren.  Myrtle is very outgoing and loves to fish!  The quote that means the most to her is, “love thy neighbor as thyself.”  Myrtle’s favorite memories are those when she saw her children for the first time.

It was saddening news when the elders, families, and stakeholders were informed that Jordan Osowicz, Physical Therapist at Morgantown Care and Rehab Center, would be transferring his employment to another Signature facility in Owensboro, KY.  Jordan’s compassion for the elders and was an enormous asset to the center; however, the transfer to Owensboro meant a shorter commute and more time to spend with his expecting wife and young child. On the bright side, the departure meant that Morgantown Care and Rehab Center was returned by a familiar face.  Shan Winquist, Physical Therapist, was welcomed to Signature’s family this month.  Shan is not a stranger to the company, as she has a long relationship with Morgantown Care and Rehab Center.  Shan worked for Morgantown Care and Rehab Center in the past and is excited about the return.  Shan earned her physical therapy degree from the University of Kentucky.  She has worked as a physical therapist for twenty-eight years and shares her therapy passion with her husband, Rick, who is also a physical therapist.  Shan states that her favorite part of the physical therapy field is “seeing progress as people improve.” Shan and her family are from Bowling Green, KY.  She is a proud parent of two children, a daughter, who works as an emergency room nurse at Vanderbilt, and a son, who attends graduate school at the University of Kentucky.  Shan enjoys attending church, reading, and exercising in her free time.  We would like to welcome Shan to our family and look forward to the exciting accomplishments she makes with our elders.

There is always something exciting going on at Morgantown Care and Rehab Center.  Whether it’s our daily activities, getting out in the community, or taking trips to desired locations, Morgantown Care and Rehab Center supports Signature Healthcare’s Quality of Life Program.  Signature Healthcare embraces the concept that all elders should live life to their fullest capability, regardless or their age or physical challenges.  Last weekend Morgantown Care and Rehab Center was able to assist one elder to fulfill a lifelong dream.  Geraldine Johnson has been a lifelong fan of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team.  She spends her time keeping up with statistics and watching the Cardinals try to achieve victory.  Ms. Johnson longed for the day that she would be able to attend one of their games in person; therefore, it was only natural that Morgantown Care and Rehab Center would help her fulfill this dream.  With Mandy Clubbs, Director of Nursing and Lorna Lee, Activities Director in tow, Ms. Johnson traveled to St. Louis for the weekend.  While in St. Louis, the group spent time attending a St. Louis Cardinal’s baseball game and visiting sites such as the Gateway Arch. Ms.  Johnson was all smiles and stated, “I can’t believe I actually got to go to a game.  It was one of the best times in my life.”

The Hall Of Fame is an innovative Quality of Life Program developed by Signature HealthCARE designed to honor the lives and accomplishments of our residents, stakeholders, volunteers, and others who have had such an impact on our centers, communities, and nation.

On October 9, 2014, 87 Signature HealthCARE centers across the southeast and midwest will induct over 350 distinguished individuals into the Hall of Fame, in local ceremonies featuring celebrity speakers and presentations about the inductees lives and accomplishments.
