2009 Seattle - Northaven Assisted Living "I look around here and say thank you to Bob," says Joyce Mays, a resident at Northaven Assisted Living. Joyce’s husband, Bob Mays, passed away in 2001, but his legacy of boldly leading his small church congregation to build Northaven is appreciated by hundreds every day, including his dear wife. In 1963 Bob accepted the pastorship at Olympic View Church in Seattle’s Maple Leaf neighborhood. He and Joyce moved their young family to Seattle from Long Beach, Calif. and Bob began a career of inspired leadership and teaching that grew a thriving congregation of about 250 members.
Joyce’s mother, Mettie Hulse, was one of its first residents. Mettie had been a long-time resident of Northaven’s retirement building and even supported its construction by providing an interest-free loan. After living there for nearly 20 years, she reached a point where she needed a little more assistance. Joyce continues to be grateful"
