Colonial Mansion Houses Seniors
The History of Rose of Sharon Home Dates Back to 1920’s Pennsylvania
There’s a lot we can say about Rose of Sharon Home in Saint Michael, PA. During the 1920s, architects built an elegant colonial mansion in this small, Pennsylvania coal mining town. For many years, it was a local doctor’s residence and medical practice. Today, this 100+year-old house continues to stand in its elegance as the Rose of Sharon Home.
Creating a Compassionate and Caring Home in the Community
John and Janet Lacko,
Rose of Sharon Home started as Janet’s dream. She lived across the street from the colonial mansion almost all of her life. For much of that time, she had often pictured happy, elderly people living there. John shared her dream, and through planning and hard work, that dream finally became a reality. They welcomed their first resident into Rose of Sharon Home in 1988.
The Lackos are God-fearing, compassionate, and caring people. They dedicate themselves to providing the elderly community with an elegant, beautiful, and “homey” personal care home. Though Janet retired in recent years, John continues working diligently to keep the building and grounds beautiful for the residents.
Administrator and Board President
Sherri, daughter of John and Janet Lacko, has been an integral part of the Rose of Sharon Home since its inception. She became Administrator in 1998 before becoming an owner and operator in July of 2015. Sherri loves being part of the Rose of Sharon team.
“Many people have asked me how I can joyfully perform the duties of Administrator,” Sherri said. “They see it as a depressing and difficult job. Although it has its challenges, the rewards are endless. Seeing our elderly respond to the love they are given is worth it all!”
