Kelly Gilbert, Service Coordinator at Samuel Tabas Apartments, recently had the opportunity to speak with long standing residents, Irv and Roberta Lefferts. Kelly had a ball interviewing the pair! Kelly described this as a wonderful opportunity: “They are such a fun-loving couple who were willing to share some words of wisdom with me.”
KG: How long have you two been married?
Irv and Roberta: 51 years- Roberta was 22 and Irv was 25.
KG: How did you meet each other?
Irv: We met on a Blind Date!
Roberta: A gentleman Irv worked with asked if he wanted to go out on a Saturday night…
Irv (interjects and states): …Roberta was there and the rest was history!
KG: What is your secret to being married 51 years?
Irv: You fight and you argue, but you make it work.
KG: What is your philosophy on life?
Irv: Just get by day by day, live your life the best you can, get along with everyone, and a dash of hope to win the lottery!
Roberta: I agree with Irv, try to get along with people, and make the best of everything you can.
KG: How has living at Samuel Tabas Apartments impacted your lives?
Irv and Roberta: We have a good life, we enjoy living here. You get used to things, it’s convenient for everything.
KG: What advice would you give to someone just moving to Samuel Tabas Apartments?
Irv and Roberta: Join in and participate in different things… get involved!
Thanks Irv and Roberta! We hope you continue to call Samuel Tabas your home for years to come.
