The SourceBook cover story, titled “Her Biggest Fan,” offers a glimpse into Epstein’s life from raising three successful children with her husband Aaron to enjoying the amenities of her current home, BayWoods of Annapolis, a Continuing Care Retirement Community.
As a singer and homemaker, she encouraged her family to be active and seek creativity while she spoke for Christian Women Clubs and churches. When her husband passed away a few months before their planned move to BayWoods, Epstein chose to move to the community where she found healing from its supportive residents and staff. With a stunning view of the Chesapeake, Epstein enjoys having her youngest daughter Michie nearby and visiting Kathie Lee and her son David in New York.
Lauren Searson, editor of the SourceBook said, “It was a remarkable experience hearing Joan’s story firsthand. As someone who is very caring and down-to-earth, she fits the mold of the vibrant individuals we enjoy featuring in the magazine.”
And as Gifford shared her excitement on The Today Show, she could not be happier for the recent “cover girl.”
“It’s a very sweet article and I’m very proud of her,” said Gifford. “She represents her retirement community just beautifully.”
Joan Epstein’s story can be read in the SourceBook’s State of Maryland Fall 2009 edition. To order a copy, call 800-394-9990, ext. 1126 or visit www.retirement-
