Mrs. Rucker – My Neighborhood, My Home

Mrs. Rucker, age 64, moved to Dayton with her family after growing up in Atlanta. She later moved back to Atlanta as an adult. It was the declining health of her parents that brought Mrs. Rucker back to Dayton in 1998. They left the house to her after their passing. She has lived in that home ever since. She worked at Good Samaritan Hospital in the records office but is now retired. She enjoys living in Westwood, and she tries to watch out for the neighborhood. She continues to maintain her home but unfortunately she can only do so much. It has been the major parts of the home that have been the hardest to maintain.
