Ann Lowry (center), sees herself in a photograph from the early 1970s, during the 50th anniversary open house and reunion celebration Aug. 8 at Issaquah Nursing & Rehabilitation on Front Street South. Lowry worked there from 1967 to 1987, first as a nurse and eventually as director of nurses and administration, at what was then Issaquah Villa, founded by Dr. John Whittaker. Margaret Robinson (right) worked from 1970 to 1990 with Lowry, starting as receptionist, and then bookkeeper and office manager. Kristen Nash, a neighbor and friend of Lowry’s in Issaquah, also enjoys the photos, stories and refreshments. The party for current and former staff members and patients attracted eight retired employees from the earliest days of the nursing home. Eastside Fire & Rescue also attended for a fill-the-boot fundraiser to benefit the Issaquah Valley Senior Center.
