Nestled in a Maplewood neighborhood, just north of the Twin Cities, is a Good Samaritan Society skilled-nursing facility staffed by long-time locals.

“I grew up right down the road that way,” Sue Peka says.

Donna Neihart did the same. “Right across the street,” she says. “I’m number nine out of 10 children, and all the siblings worked here. So, I followed suit. Here I still am.”

Donna Bordsen also enjoyed the convenient location.

“I just needed a job at the time, and it was close. I didn’t have to worry about having a license and driving,” Bordsen says.

All three work in food service.

“Everything kind of fell into place,” says Bordsen, Society food service assistant.

All three, Donna, Donna and Sue, with more than 40 years of experience at this same building.
