Meet Carlton Senior Living spotlight resident, Pamela “Pam” Wingo - Pam was born on March 19, 1947 in Detroit, Michigan to parents Pearl and Benjamin Marton. She has five siblings: Katherine, Barbara, twins David and Donald, and Gary. All of Pam’s siblings hope to have a reunion soon. Some of Pam’s favorite childhood memories are of playing with her brothers and sisters. All of them are close in age and they enjoyed playing hopscotch, dominoes, jump rope and baseball together in the backyard. She also recalls their family getting their first television—big, bulky, and black and white—and to her, this was a big deal. Pam loved school and was “a natural student.” She especially enjoyed reading. She recalls her schools having very strict dress codes—while bent over, your dress was supposed to still touch the ground. Although she always had good grades, she did not do so well in two classes—cooking and bowling. In the cooking class, they made a pizza, and this was, to date, the worst pizza she has ever eaten. She also got a “D” in a bowling class, which had the longest final she had ever taken. In the second grade, Pam decided that she was going to become a nurse. She attended Wayne State University, in Detroit, for her nursing degree. During Pam’s nursing career she always worked in pediatrics, first for Sutter Hospital and then for Kaiser. Pam’s first husband was her high school sweetheart, Richard Chinnock. The two also attended Wayne State together. Pam handmade most of her clothes through college, including her wedding dress. She and Richard had three children: Laurie, Adam, and Lisa. Richard was in the Air Force and during their marriage, their family lived in New Orleans, Utah, and Alaska, which was miserably cold. When her oldest child was 13, they moved to Sacramento. Richard and Pam separated soon after their move to California. Pam met her second husband, Charles Wingo, when she was in her early 40s. Pam has six grandchildren: Grant, Reid, Annaleigh, Parker, Ryan, and Jordan. During Pam and Richard’s many moves they traveled the country extensively. They drove across Canada, on the ALCAN Highway, on their move to Alaska. They also drove from Michigan to California. These trips allowed them to stop and experience different parts of the U.S., including Washington D.C. Pam has also taken cruises to Hawaii and Mexico. Pam moved to Carlton Senior Living Davis in April 2019. She really enjoys the activities and outings offered by the community. She also appreciates the respect the staff show to the residents. She lives here with her dog, Bella, and is very glad that Carlton is pet-friendly. Pam would like to be remembered as a good person and a good mother—she counts becoming a mother among her favorite life experiences. She loves music from the 70s and musicals. Her favorite movie is “The Sound of Music.” Her favorite meal is either tilapia or salmon, with ice cream for dessert. She loves the smell of flowers, especially roses. Pam believes in the golden rule—doing unto others as you want others to do unto you. She encourages others to appreciate every minute they have on this earth and to be thoughtful, kind, and helpful to those around them. She describes herself as kind, generous, and interested in life. She most admires her grandmother, Sarah, who Pam describes as kind and loving. View additional Resident Spotlight articles.

Meet Carlton Senior Living spotlight resident, Margery Daddow - Marge was born September 14, 1938 in Southern California to Alice and William (Bill) Spangler. When she was little her family moved to Nicolaus, California. They made the move because her father’s brothers were both in the service and her grandfather needed help with his farm. After the war, her uncles joined them in Nicolaus and they created their own business, the Spangler Brothers Inc., which is still up and running. Most of Marge’s life was spent on a farm or in farming territory. She has three siblings, James (Jim), her late sister Peggy, and late brother Gary. Marge’s favorite childhood memories come from her grandmother’s home in Rio Linda. After her grandfather passed away, “she (grandma) spoiled me rotten and had such a lovely home.” Her grandfather also built a cabin in Alta, California with a giant fireplace and bunks for sleeping. She fondly remembers “arguing about who got to sleep in which bunk”. Marge and her siblings all attended East Nicolaus High School, where she was a cheerleader. After high school, she attended Chico State University. Marge has lived in many places in California, including Nicolaus, Sutter County, Sacramento, Fair Oaks, Gridley, and just outside of Gridley on an orchard. Her favorite trips have also been within the state, including a trip to the Sacramento Zoo. One year her parents took them to Disneyland, and she said, “as a farming family, that was a big deal.” Margery was married twice, first to Richard Nestor and then to Nicholas Daddow. She and Richard had three children together: Patrick, Michael, and Roxanne. She also has three stepchildren from her second marriage: David, Richard, and Nikki. She has five grandchildren, a good number of great-grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Her second husband, Nicholas, was the local paper editor and sports editor for Gridley. He also announced the high school football games. She has had many pets throughout her life, including dogs, cats, and a variety of farm animals. One year they even got a Shetland Pony for Roxanne. When Marge was a kid, she knew she would one day be a schoolteacher. She did become a teacher and was a principal of an elementary school for a portion of the year before retiring. She was an officer and a member of the California Teachers Association and a representative for special needs students within the C.T.A. She also worked for her church as a Sunday School teacher for the preschoolers. In high school, she was a lifeguard and a babysitter. One of Margery’s favorite life experiences was teaching young children. She found it to be very rewarding. She looks at life in a positive way and encourages people to, “just keep working.” She would like to be remembered as a kind person and wants others to know the importance of being nice to their children. When asked about her life at Carlton, she stated that her kids, “moved her here (to Carlton) and I did not even see the place before, but I like it now and couldn’t ask for a better place.” She has lived here since December 2, 2019. Her favorite thing about Carlton Senior Living Davis is that people keep their word and that things start on time. She loves country western music and ballads. Her favorite movie is “The Sound of Music.” Margery enjoys eating good chicken in just about any form--barbequed, fried, or roasted, but definitely not with gravy on it! Her favorite scent is vanilla. Marge likes to think of herself as “busy, a good entertainer, and a homey, country type of girl.” She most admires the women she used to know during her time with the American Association of University Women (AAUW). She was always impressed at how the ladies there could have a social life, go to church, and still be able to tend to their families. View additional Resident Spotlight articles.
