The Marketing Team was delighted to welcome the granddaughter and great-granddaughters of Charles and Marjorie Timson recently. The family visited Asheville from Arkansas and Colorado, with a visit to Deerfield being number one on their to-do list.

“It is such an amazing community and you can feel the love when you are there. This was very special for my mom, sisters and me.” — Debbie, Timson great-granddaughter

Charles and Marjorie Timson gifted their home and 30 acres of land to the Diocese of Western North Carolina in 1955, having been inspired by the call from Bishop Henry for a home for the aged, and their gift has grown to become a lifecare community on 125 acres serving over 600 residents and providing employment to over 300  staff members. Their visit included a tour of the community, a view of the Biltmore Estate from the 5th floor of Timson Hall, and a walk through the former Timson home and Meditation Garden at St. Giles Chapel.
