Betty Pope and Jean Sayre both live at Chelsea Retirement Community. But they have much more in common than that! While they had never officially met before coming to CRC, they recently discovered that their paths have crossed several times over the years.
Both their parents lived at CRC, as did Betty’s grandmother. Jean’s father, Rev. Edwin Weiss, served CRC as Administrator from 1957 to 1966. Before and after that time, he served Westside United Methodist Church, where Betty Pope was a member. Rev. Weiss baptized two of Betty’s children. Betty’s daughter married Jean’s nephew! Today, they are neighbors on the fifth floor of Dancey House, CRC’s Independent Living residence.
Says Betty, “If you live at CRC, you’re going to find connections!”
