Primrose resident Christine Lofgren
June of 2014, Christine moved into Primrose to help care for her Mother, Betty. She came here from Whidbey Island, Washington where she has lived for the past 14 years and this is where she owns a home. She was born in Seattle, Washington. From 1964-1967 she lived with her family near Heidelberg, Germany and was able to travel to numerous countries, including Israel just days before the Six Day War. She graduated from Whitehall-Yearling H. S. and the Ohio State University before moving to the Zanesfield area. She worked as a cook for Marmon Valley Farm and was a house parent at Adriel School. Later she moved to Teaneck, NJ to care for her aging grandparents before settling in Asheville, NC where she learned the trade of making of custom home interiors for Interior Decorators. During her training and while owning her own business – Fabric Creations – she sewed for some of Asheville’s finest homes including the Biltmore House and Albamerle Inn. In 2001 she moved back to WA to be closer to her parents and worked as a caregiver and seamstress. For the past 8 years she has been sewing accessories for K-9 Carts, a company that makes carts for handicap animals. She enjoys living at Primrose and teaching bible study every other week. She encourages everyone to join the nondenominational bible study that meets every Tuesday at 11:00 A.M. in the Chapel.
