Guiding Star Honoree
Don Chapdelaine, has lived all his life in Eagan, with his wife Gerry of 64 years. It is there they raised their family of eight children. Sister Jean Therese asked Don to help her gather support and find a location for what was to become Wakota Life-Care Center, now Guiding Star Wakota. Along with the help of Pat Foley, Dan Rossini and others, that goal was realized in 1976. For over four decades since, Wakota has continued to serve thousands of women, children, and their families.
