Bette and Art Frankel have been married for 68 years and have lived in California for 58 years. They have three children, nine grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, all living in LA.
Although Bette had a brief illness two years ago – a time that was tough on their children as they tried to support the couple – they’re both back to being physically fit and able. “We thought now’s the time to move on to the next great stage of life,” says Bette, who is still a working travel agent. She and Art, a retired president and CEO of a large retailer, are looking forward to the rooftop garden, swimming pool, book clubs, lectures, exercise classes and the security of living in a continuing care retirement community. Bette and Art have attended every special event since they became depositors.
