Throughout the early years of their marriage, John and Kristin Gable lived all across the U.S. Their occupations kept them on the move.
“We have lived in several different states during our working careers,” said John, noting that the couple finally settled down in Indianapolis in 2007 and have lived there ever since.
But the Gables, who are both in their mid-60s, have not slowed down, especially not since moving into Hoosier Village senior living community in March.
John is the pastor of Tabernacle Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis. Kristin is a retired middle school math teacher who enjoys playing pickleball.
Living in Hoosier Village has, in fact, opened new doors for the active couple.
A BHI Senior Living Community, Hoosier Village is a 300-acre neighborhood in Zionsville for residents 62 and older. It has a fitness center, library, dining venues and a nondenominational chapel, among other amenities.
“We both really enjoy meeting our new neighbors,” John said. “Everyone we have met is very friendly and welcoming. (We enjoy) the many activities Hoosier Village offers. We are both learning to play pickleball and have really enjoyed our neighborhood gatherings.”
“I enjoy our walks around the various neighborhoods within Hoosier Village, meeting and visiting with new friends,” she said.
Although Kristin is retired, John is still active in his ministry and has no immediate plans to retire.
“I love working with people and encouraging them in the ways God is working in their lives,” he said. “I also love our church’s ministry and service in the city.”
During her teaching career, Kristin enjoyed her “interactions with middle school-aged children and helping students master math concepts in a variety of ways.”
The Gables have two adult children and three grandchildren.
