News You Can Use
by Julie Gabell
Split Rail Village
Eleven years ago, Patricia Teeling came to Beacon Woods from Bedford, New Hampshire where she worked as a leasing agent for Cohen Properties, Longfellow Properties, and Beacon Management--all out of Boston. She readily admits, though, that her favorite career was being a mom and homemaker. In recent years, however, some say that she has “gone to the dogs,” and in her book that’s just fine!
Since Roscoe decided Patty was his person, her life has changed dramatically. Although a dog has never enjoyed top billing with a Notable Neighbor before, Patty is happy to share the notoriety—with him and with all beloved pets throughout the area. She says of her reddish Golden Retriever: “He is really not a dog. He is pure love in a red suit.”
Roscoe’s story has a sad side, but from the moment he adopted Patty and she took him home, he has led a charmed and charming existence. Dropped off at the Hernando Animal Shelter after his original owner was killed in a car accident, Roscoe was rescued by the president of Paw Warriors in Spring Hill. There his playfulness and the fact that he was in the way of the other volunteers caught Patty’s attention. It was love at first sight. At the end of the day, the frisky retriever jumped into her car and from that point on there was no turning back.
Also sharing top billing in Pattyi’s life is her work at Cares. As a Medicare Clerk who mans the phones each afternoon, she has become well aware of the needs of Seniors throughout Beacon Woods. Her contribution in this active non-profit center has sparked her desire to help others and provided an avenue for her to make a difference.
Like so many other active members of our community, Patty finds working for a good cause rewarding. She recognizes what a great asset Cares is to our residents, and values the opportunity to see first-hand the many beneficial services they offer. With Maya Angelou she strongly believes that “People will forget what you said; people will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.” At Cares she knows she has found the perfect venue for putting this philosophy into practice.
Each summer Patty eagerly returns to New England to spend time with her son, Jonathan, at his vacation home on the Piscataquog River in New Boston, NH. Here she takes full advantage of her chance to swim, read, and catch up on family activities. A hiking and tubing enthusiast, Patty also makes sure she squeezes in plenty of time to enjoy her “special place” and the lush beauty of this countryside that has captured such a large chunk of her heart.
Patty is an asset to Beacon Woods. We need her gift for working with people, her love of animals, and her overall helpfulness to maintain our reputation as one of the premier retirement communities in West-Central Florida. Roscoe, also, should not be overlooked, for he and all the loveable critters he represents, are Notable Neighbors in their own right.

Monies are also used to purchase items for the patients such as arts and crafts.
