Wilson - It was more than 40 years ago when Jack Lally came knocking on Fran Beckman’s door. She was working for the home care office at DePaul Hospital but he wanted her to come work for Cardinal Ritter Institute. That day began a long history for the Beckman family and Cardinal Ritter Senior Services. In the early days, Fran’s daughters, Ann, Barb and Linda, would spend their summers working in the accounting department, medical records, billing – you name it, they would do it. Growing up on a farm, the sisters were always taught by their parents to give back, to take care of others. Each year at Thanksgiving their parents would cook up a feast – turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and all the trimmings - for all of the home health aides that Fran supervised, and the Beckman sisters would help serve and clean up. Working alongside their mom at CRSS reinforced that desire in each of them to nurture and care for others. Ann spent her summers during high school and during college working in the medical records and home health departments. After having children, she returned to CRSS and worked in the accounting department before becoming the manager Summer 2009 75 Years of Service from the Beckman Sisters From the CEO 2 CRSS Celebrates Senior Adult Week 2 Mature Mile 3 Thank You!

It was at Santa Maria that she first realized the impact of her work and the love and appreciation that the residents had for her. “We would have these parties and all of the residents would come. One of the parties happened to be on my birthday, and I thought they might have a cake for me,” Ann said. “All of a sudden, I heard all of these sirens. I raced back into the building, but couldn’t find any sign of trouble. When I came back out, the firemen were there with a huge cake, full of candles – all arranged by my residents!” After 25 years of working for CRSS, just like her mom, Ann still finds caring for her residents to be the most rewarding part of her job. continued on page 3 The senior adults at DuBourg House, 5890 Eichelberger, in St. Louis, benefited from a Home Builders Charitable Foundation grant for wooden hand rails to increase resident safety and mobility. Deca Realty donated the labor for installation and finishing of the hand rails along all interior hallways. The finished wood adds beauty as well as safety for the seniors in the assisted living residence.
