The homeowner to receive our help is: Eunice Scholten
Born in Iowa, this 84 year old homeowner came to Silicon Valley to work for some of earliest technology companies in the region, like Ampex and Northern Telecom. Prior to moving to the San Jose region, her husband had served in the Navy working with submarines. She liked to spend her free time as a Girls Scout leader and volunteering at a local church when she was raising the family. They were forced to move into their current home after the husband had a stroke and became severely paralyzed in 1989, which ate up a significant amount of their savings. He has since passed away. Recently, her daughter had to move in with her to assist and take care of the homeowner's worsening dementia.
