A Family Legacy

A Note from Executive Director, Pam Lewis

Aster Estates has its roots in our family’s legacy of serving seniors. My dad, Clarence Johansen, worked for long-term-care entities for many years and wanted to be more personally involved. Dad and my mom, Doris, opened Cherry Village in 1978 at Great Bend.


I immediately became administrator and held that position until July 2018. Serving seniors is still part of me. Now I want to serve in a new, more homelike setting.


My son, Jeremy, and daughter-in-law, Erin, also are committed to Aster Estates. It really is in our blood.


To demonstrate what this means to us, my mom and I live here. We understand what it’s like to sell a family home and start living a new life. We will make the transition as smooth as possible.


When you choose Aster Estates, you become our extended family. Please call on us anytime to ask questions or take a tour. The welcome mat is out.
