WGV Resident Spotlight on Eunice Johannesen

Posted by: Alayna Oram in Uncategorized
 
Every month, The Neighborhoods of World Golf Village selects a resident from the Jacksonville golf course community to be featured in our blog. Then we ask them a series of random questions so all the neighbors get to know them better! This month we are pleased to introduce you to Eunice Johannesen. Eunice and her husband, Tom, moved to the King & Bear at WGV about five years ago. Since their children are grown and live out-of-state, they recently adopted two Jack Russell puppies, Maggie and Patrick. Meet Eunice…
1. What is your favorite thing about living in WGV?
The beautiful landscaping and overall beauty/impression one get
s of the developer’s diligence to the environment.  Other important things are security and the protection that the deed restrictions provide homeowners.  WGV allows us to be active in many ways — golf, walking, biking, swimming and easy access to the beach.
2. What makes a house a home?
A house is a home when it’s filled with comfort and love, good neighbors and friends, which includes many visits from our out-of-state families and friends.
3. What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner?
The best part of Thanksgiving dinner is having family join our table and cooking all the traditional Thanksgiving foods.  I am especially fond of the stuffing!
4. How will our culture change in the next 100 years?
1.  I believe there will be a decline in population growth. 2.  The greenhouse effect will cause a dying earth with drastic changes in climate affecting all of the people of the world, as well as wild life.  The Arctic and Antarctic ice caps will melt.  3.  I believe space exploration will eventually lead to solar power for the world in the future, decreasing our dependency on oil.  4.  People will continue to feel compassion and love, and have the desire to help each other in times of need. 5.  I can envision the future way wars will be fought will not involve humans being put in harms way, but rather technology will be sophisticated enough by that time to fight wars with robots operated from a safe environment with strategic goals being much more realistic. The ravages of war  will continue.  6.  Hopefully there will be a cure for cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, etc.  In fact, research may very well have developed vaccines for these diseases, and other serious diseases, by that time!
5. If you lived to be 100, would it be more important to have a sharp mind or a fit body?
I’d have to say sharp mind, although I’d prefer both sharp mind and fit body; however, if I had to choose, I’d go with sharp mind.
6. If you owned a boat, what name would you choose for it?
Time Out
7. What are the most important qualities you look for in friends?
Trust, honesty, integrity, credibility and sense of humor.  A good friend is one you can count on and talk to about anything without being judged.
8. Which celebrity do people say you most resemble?
Julie Andrews or Doris Day (so I’ve been told).
9. If possible, would you live year round in your favorite season?
Yes, summer — 80 degrees, sun and low humidity.
>10. When you were young what did you< want to be when you grew up?
Two things — a singer and a Nurse Practitioner.
11. In your opinion, what are the seven wonders of the world?
1.  Taj Mahal, India (I’ve been there).  2.  Chichen Itza, Mexico (I’ve been there).  3.  Mount Rushmore, South Dakota (Been there — I’m a native South Dakotan).  4.  Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy (I’ve been there).  5.  Niagara Falls, New York/Canada (I’ve been there).  6.  Stonehenge, England  7.  Grand Canyon, Arizona
