Meet the Dennings

Bob and Kathy Denning joined the LifeWorks Family in August 2011 after reading an article in the newspaper about our programs and various activities. Bob and Kathy are active participants of the Walking Program, also known as the Breakfast Bunch. They faithfully come to the Center daily to walk and socialize with friends old and new.

It didn’t take us long to discover that Kathy had a hidden talent in making beautiful Beach Glass jewelry and accessories. Kathy began working with Beach glass as a therapeutic activity after she was diagnosed with tremors. Bob and Kathy use a team approach, he finds the beach glass and she does the drilling, cleaning and assembling of the pieces. Kathy has her own side business: Beach Glass by Cass” .

Bob and Kathy began their journey as high school sweethearts but after High School they went in different directions, marrying other people.  Years later, after Kathy’s first husband passed away and Bob had been divorced, fate brought them back together when they were reunited at a Benefit Dance held at the National Guard Armory. Shortly after, Bob asked Kathy’s hand in marriage…and the rest, as they say, is history. Bob and Kathy have been married for 22 years. Together they have 7 children, 15 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. 

Kathy worked for St. Vincent’s for 10 years and Bob retired from GE after 35 years. Bob enjoys collecting movies; currently he has over 500 DVD’s. He also enjoys burning CD’s for family and friends of music that they enjoy at no charge to them. 

They both love music from the 50’s and 60’s and enjoy dancing. Truth be told, they have won many dance contests for their jitterbug moves on the floor. We wish Kathy and Bob many more years of health and prosperity.
