    There is no higher calling, no greater purpose than that of a caregiver. Somehow, we’ve come to believe that caregiving is just for some of us and not all of us. Yet at our core, we are all made to love, to connect, to extend ourselves in service of others. The question is ... do we have the will to love, to do what it takes, to risk ourselves in caring, even when the burden is great? In times of happiness, in times of sadness - we are that caregiver.

    MUSCATINE, Iowa–For Fontayne Ziegenhorn, Muscatine has always felt like home. Growing up, Ziegenhorn went to school first at Jefferson Elementary and then at Muscatine High School. Even then, she liked all the opportunities to get to know her classmates and neighbors.

    After high school, Zeigenhorn spent 40 years helping to run a farm. She never tired of her work and always loved the earthy farm smell.

    An animal lover, Zeigenhorn spent many years volunteering at the Muscatine County Fair. She enjoyed working with the many kinds of animals kids would exhibit and felt comfortable in the farm-like atmosphere.

    Ziegenhorn married in Muscatine. She raised two children, her son, Brian, and daughter, Andrea.

    A huge sports fan, Ziegenhorn enjoys rooting for Iowa every chance she gets. In her spare time, she also enjoys completing craft projects.

    As long as she can remember, Ziegenhorn has loved Muscatine for its small town feel. She has always appreciated how easily she could get to know everybody and how much everyone cares about each other. Over the years, her fondest memories have involved the many friends she made over the years and the close connections they have had.

    Since moving to Bickford Senior Living, Ziegenhorn has valued getting to stay in the city she cares so much about. She also really likes the close-knit relationships everyone at Bickford makes with each other and looks forward to many years of making connections and memories with all the people there.
