Bonnie Landreth was crowned the 2014 Valentine Queen at Fair View Nursing Home’s 15th Annual Valentine Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s on Friday. Employees of the home nominated Landreth, Maxine Wertz, Maggie Smith and Margaret Whitcomb and worked to raise money for each. In total the home’s Administrator Connie Pope said $4,566 was raised with Landreth’s team, known as the Magnificent Seven, raising $4000.
The Magnificent Seven team donated their gift basket to Landreth’s daughter Tammy Schoen. Landreth had nine family members present for her coronation, daughters Schoen, and Cheryl Page, and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
To top off the event, a Valentine cake, donated by Jana Tague, owner of The Cake Lady of Sedalia, was served to residents with sparkling white grape juice.
