Resident Spotlight: Viola Kohn
“I grew up in Schenectady and Albany, New York. We had a small family. I had one older sister, and she passed away when we were adults.
We had a German shepherd. He was a lovely doggie. When I was very young, my family moved to the Burlington area in Vermont.
My first job was in the engineering office at General Electric. I did drawings of the machinery. It was a very good job.
While I was working there, I met my husband. We had two children, a girl and a boy. It was nice to have one of each. They are all grown up.
I like it when my friend comes to visit me at Ethan Allen Residence. There are a lot of nice people here, too.”
