A 30-year resident of Presbyterian SeniorCare's Bellmead Apartments in Washington was recognized last week for her history of volunteerism in the community of senior citizens and people with disabilities.

Loa Owen, 68, moved into the apartment complex two weeks after it opened, and took on volunteer roles such as organizing monthly shopping trips for residents, knitting items for the Salvation Army, delivering mail to patients at Washington Hospital and visiting patients at the adjacent Southmont nursing home facility.

Owen was recognized with a string of pearls, in an event that also marked the anniversary of Bellmead's opening. The apartment complex, run by the nonprofit Presbyterian SeniorCare, has 120 apartments with rents eligible for federal subsidies.
