FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Spirit of Aging Embodied by Geraldine Sanson at Augustana Regent of Burnsville

Saint Paul – (February 27, 2020) – Geraldine “Gerry” Sanson, a resident at Augustana Regent at Burnsville, was recently honored by LeadingAge Minnesota with the District Spirit of Aging Award. The District Spirit of Aging Award honors an older adult who exemplifies the concept of positive and active aging.

“From the first day Gerry arrived at the Regent, she has warmed the hearts of many with her friendly smile, positive attitude, endless energy and compassion,” says Augustana Regent Executive Director Vicki Tobroxen. “Gerry’s outgoing personality stems from 40 years as an elementary teacher. During her teaching years, she was recognized twice as a Teacher of the Year.” 

Gerry speaks very highly of years spent mentoring students. She also brings the same love and passion she brought to her teaching days into her daily life and volunteering at the Regent. She continues to help others and give back to her community. She has been a “buddy” to many new residents, President of the Red Hatters Society, assists with memory care and care suite activities, maintains our library, and much more.

Gerry knows all too well how dementia takes a toll on your loved ones, as her sister is dealing with Alzheimer’s. Gerry always has a genuine and caring attitude. She is a terrific listener and has endless patience – wonderful attributes from her teaching years. Gerry has a theatrical side as well and has taken on lead parts in many of the plays productions at the Regent. She was voted Regent Queen in 2012. 

“When you think of the word Cassia’s association with the ideal of having a heart of a servant – Gerry is living Christ’s mission on a daily bases as she leads from her heart. We are blessed to have Gerry as part of our family,” says Tobroxen.

Gerry received the award in conjunction with the LeadingAge Minnesota Institute & Expo, the state’s largest and most comprehensive aging services conference. Nearly 4,000 professionals in all aspects of older adult services attend the annual three-day event to learn about new and innovative programs, share best practices and network with their peers.

Gerry was honored to receive this award, saying she did not see herself as doing anything out of the ordinary to receive it. “Gerry was well deserving of this award. She is always giving of herself and never expects anything in return,” says Gerry’s younger sister Gen.
