Village families are creating lasting legacies of their loved ones
Bertha's Salon

In August, three generations of the Meyer family honored their late matriarch, Bertha Meyer, by dedicating the Creekside at the Village beauty salon in her memory. Bertha was one of the original members of Creekside at the Village and the full-service salon was named for her by her children Nancy and Bruce Meyer and Nancy and Terry Meyer and their grown children.

Rehabilitaion Lounge
Family and friends of the late Florlyn and Lawrence Freeman gathered last month to dedicate a new lounge for our rehabilitation patients, their families and their guests in the Freemans' memory. Over the years, many members of the Freeman family have been patients and residents at Wexner Heritage House, Zusman Hospice and Heritage Tower. Florlyn, who had no children of her own, generously remembered WHV in her will.
