On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, our mother passed away peacefully in her sleep in Placerville, CA, at the age of 106. She’d been a resident of Gold Country Health Center’s skilled nursing section since July 2016, as a result of falling and breaking her leg. Although she never quite regained her strength or mobility, she adjusted fairly well to her new surroundings. The nursing staff cared for her so lovingly and they grew to be like family to us, and us to them.
