May 10 was a day to remember for Willie and Mary Villanueva. The Winnsboro couple had their 66th wedding anniversary in February, but were unable to celebrate it due to COVID-19. The senior living community where they live, Autumn Wind, stepped up and made sure the couple had a wonderful celebration to make up for it.
When speaking to their daughter on what her parents would like to do, the zoo was the first thing that came to mind. After carefully planning with their daughter, the plan was set in place… to the Caldwell Zoo they went!
The Villanuevas are from Houston and moved to East Texas after Hurricane Ike took their home and business. While living in Houston, visiting the Houston Zoo was a favorite pastime and anytime they had company, going to the zoo was a must.
The couple and community staff also enjoyed a seafood lunch at the Jumbo Seafood restaurant. The Villanuevas had a boat cleaning business that kept them busy on the coast for over 20 years, so seafood hit the spot!
Autumn Wind’s address is 1004 E Coke Rd, Winnsboro, TX 75494.
