Meet the Lavenders

Names: Deane and Jane Lavender
Occupations: Pastor and Educator, Nursing
Residence: Cypress (one bedroom den)

When Deane conducted the first Sunday chapel service at this retirement community pa, Sherwood Oaks in 1982, he and his wife Jane may not have known when they would become residents. But, after years of recommending Sherwood Oaks to friends, they moved in two years ago. “We had been familiar with Sherwood Oaks almost from its opening. We knew it to be a high-quality place to live in retirement.”

Since then, the couple has become involved with the campus gardens, chorus, bell choir and the Residents Association Board of Directors. Deane and Jane’s advice to others? “Think of Sherwood Oaks as a secure future and a gift to your children.”
