Harry & Jane Bihler
The Bihlers, Harry and Jane, found their new Silverado home in Eskaton Village Roseville just a mile from their old house in Sun City Roseville. Jane credits a length hospital stay a year ago for inspiring a search for the best place to be in an emergency. Visiting senior communities around the Bay Area turned up nothing to compare with Eskaton Village Roseville, not event counting proximity to doctors and sophisticated shopping and dining. Watching their house being built from the ground up was fun and first for this couple of the Southern California transplants. When the builder thoughtfully suggested relocating appliances in the laundry room to create space for their little brown cat's furniture, they knew everything would turn out okay. And they report "close to perfect!" Harry is a golfer and tennis player; Jane is a reader. It may seem whimsical now, Jane says with a laugh, bu the idea of exploring country roads lured them from the beach a dozen years ago. Harry is a more reluctant traveler, but Jane has plotted dozens of odysseys shared with friends around the world, most recently digging out warm coats and mittens for a Christmas Markets Cruise on the Danube. They remark that their gated community will contribute to peace of mind when they leave home. Harry is heading up International Harvester's heavy equipment operations in Los Angeles and Jane, an industrial editor, was a newly minted claims adjuster in State Farm Insurance's Southern California office when they met on an Orange County golf course. With teenagers at home- Jane in Newport Beach, Harry in Brea - dating entailed long freeway commutes. A summer wedding in the little church on Balboa Island blended the two families. Forty -three years later they find much to celebrate with new friends and neighbors in their unique community. Their children, a couple of hours distant on a Peninsula, celebrate Harry's and Jane's delights in their "perfect-for0us" Silverado home and the knowledge that help will be at hand when the need arises.
