Some families enjoy getting together at the holidays, and may sneak in a trip to the beach in the summer. This is a story about a very different type of family! For years, Glenda and Rodney Walker lived next door to their daughter Terri Lovelace and her husband Richard in Lanett. So, when the Lovelaces decided to move to The Springs of Mill Lakes in Opelika, it was no surprise that the older couple purchased a home in the community as well.
“We moved to be near Richard’s work as a civil engineer, our church, our children and grandchildren,” says Terri. “We had been neighbors with my parents in our previous home and it worked out well. I like being able to help them when they need it, and I think they enjoy it too.”
At The Springs of Mill Lakes, Opelika’s master-planned community for active adults, Terri and Richard found a home and a lifestyle that fit them to a tee. “We love the open concept and the design and craftsmanship,” says Terri. While the two couples selected neighboring homes with similar floorplans, the Lovelaces’ home is decorated in a casual farmhouse style, while their parents chose a more traditional décor.
Glenda Walker, Terri’s mom, is a former educator and her husband Rodney was with Uniroyal for 30 years before opening his own tire company, which he ran for 14 years before retiring. The Walkers, who have been married for 58 years, love absolutely everything about their new home. They’re delighted with the serene environment, top healthcare nearby, plus the convenience of Tiger Town, just five minutes away. Unquestionably their biggest joy is spending time with family, including seven great grandchildren, who all live close to The Springs of Mill Lakes. “Our passion is our family and we couldn’t be happier to be here,” adds Glenda.
Both couples are excited about the easy sociability of The Springs of Mill Lakes. From the Owl’s Roost clubhouse and fitness center to the glorious lakes and pool, good friends and good times are never in short supply. And then there’s Auburn football, one of the most popular “amenities” this amenity-rich community has to offer!
