About us 
How it all began...
During the 1920's, an elegant colonial mansion was built in the small coal-mining town of Saint Michael. It had always been a prominent home in the community. For years it had been a local doctor's residence and medical practice. Today, it continues to stand in its elegance as the Rose of Sharon Home, Inc. 

​Sherri, daughter of John and Janet Lacko, has been an integral part of the Rose of Sharon Home since its inception. She has been operating as the Administrator since early 1999. She, together with her husband, Mike, carries on the passion of caring for our residents. 

"Many people have asked me how I can joyfully perform the duties of Administrator. They see it as a depressing and difficult job. Although it has its challenges, the rewards are endless. To see our elderly respond to the love they are given is worth it all! They are my passion and my purpose. Seeing their smiles, happiness, and contentment is in itself the greatest reward!" - Sherri

It had begun as a dream in the mind of Janet. Having lived across the street from the colonial mansion nearly her entire life, she had often envisioned elderly people living happily in the home outside her window. Her husband, John, shared her dream. Through much planning and hard work, their dream became a reality: the doors were opened to their first resident in 1988. They are God-fearing, compassionate, and caring people. Although Janet has retired, John has continued to work diligently to keep the building and grounds a beautiful place to live.

​Almost 50% of individuals over the age of 85 have Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. 
​Even in their own home, an elderly person who is un-supervised is at a high risk of falls, broken hips, and even death. 
​They are my passion and my purpose. Seeing their smiles, happiness, and contentment is in itself the greatest reward!
