Meet the Thrifter, Corliss Vuksta

Corliss Vuksta worked for 30 years at Columbia Gas of Ohio and five more at Sharer-Stirling-Skivolocke Funeral Home in Alliance. Now she and husband Ron enjoy Villa living at Copeland Oaks.

  • Enjoys volunteering at the Copeland Oaks Thrift Shop (all proceeds go to employees’ annual Christmas Fund – average donation is $20,000!)
  • Hosts new resident interviews on the Copeland Oaks TV station
  • Glad they came to Copeland early in retirement to enjoy all campus living has to offer

Why Copeland Oaks

In 2012, Corliss and Ron Vuksta moved to their Copeland Oaks Villa from their nearby home in Alliance. She says, “Copeland takes the stress out of retirement.”

Always a thrifter, she enjoys the Copeland Thrift Shop for more than the bargains. “For residents who love to shop but can’t get out anymore – it’s a shopping experience right from the comforts of Copeland.” She adds, “Even if you don’t need anything, it’s a great place to meet friends and shoot the breeze. That’s why I love the thrift shop – meeting new people!”

Corliss enjoys her friends and also appreciates the Copeland Oaks staff. “They take care of our everyday needs and provide us with a safe, carefree environment.”
