Jane Seymour to Share Her Heart

A multiple Emmy and Golden Globe winner, recipient of the Officer of the British Empire (OBE), which was bestowed upon her by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, Jane Seymour has proven her talents in virtually all media, the Broadway stage, motion pictures and television.
    Her love of art and color has led to her great success as a painter in watercolors and oils and as a designer. Meet her when she comes to Irvine to help celebrate and raise funds for Heritage Pointe, the county’s only Jewish senior assisted living community. She will appear on Monday, May 9, at the 31st annual Heritage Pointe Luncheon & Boutique in Irvine, moderated by long-time Temple Bat Yam leader Dr. Rob Greenfield.
    Seymour’s past films include the James Bond movie “Live and Let Die,” the cult classic “Somewhere in Time,” and the comedy “Wedding Crashers.” Her television credits include her Emmy Award-winning performance in “Onassis: The Richest Man in the World” as Maria Callas, “East of Eden,” for which she was awarded a Golden Globe, the miniseries “War and Remembrance” and her Golden Globe-winning role as Dr. Quinn on “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” which ran for six seasons.
    Daughter of a Jewish-British obstetrician and his Dutch wife, Seymour was born in England and raised in Wimbledon. She began training in dance at an early age, and was just 13 when she made her professional debut with the London Festival Ballet. That same year, she entered the Arts Educational Trust for dance, music and theater training and danced with the visiting Kirov Ballet at Covent Garden
    In addition to acting, Seymour has written over a dozen books. When she is not acting, writing or designing, Seymour can be found in her painting studio. With a thriving career as an artist and her own art gallery in Los Angeles, she has exhibited in numerous galleries and venues across North America. As a special treat, the local luncheon features a Jane Seymour Pop-up Shop, offering attendees her  scarves, designer pajamas, books, sculptures, art and more.
    Her art also serves as inspiration for Open Hearts by Jane Seymour. Inspired by her original paintings of two hearts connected and open at either end, the exclusive designs symbolize that love has no boundaries and flows unconditionally. The open-heart design reminds us that if we keep our hearts open, love will always find its way in. Seymour’s Open Heart philosophy reflects her mother’s advice that only when you keep your heart open can you best give and receive love.
    That philosophy also drives the honoree of this year’s luncheon. Loretta Modelevsky’s dream of a Jewish Home for the Aging in Orange County has been a 37-year labor of love. As part of the very first Board of Directors at Heritage Pointe, Loretta was key to creating community support “chapter” groups whose 1,000-plus members raised the awareness and seed money needed to establish Heritage Pointe.
    Loretta’s joy after the creation of Heritage Pointe continued with her job as Volunteer Coordinator there for 32 years. Now the “Golden Years” are upon her and her husband, Herb, and she is happily retiring, knowing Heritage Pointe will continue to serve the Jewish community for decades to come.
    Heritage Pointe is an award-winning Jewish senior community offering independent living, assisted living and memory care in Mission Viejo. Floor plans include studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom luxury apartments, each with a private patio or balcony. This community is designed for those seeking a Jewish lifestyle, and residents enjoy amenities such as swimming pools, putting greens, an arts studio, game room, movie theater, beauty salon, gift shop, a fitness center with in-house physical trainers, and a synagogue.
    Three kosher meals are served daily in the restaurant-style dining room. The community’s health care team can help with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, dressing and medication management. The memory care wing provides specialized care services within a compassionate, secure environment for seniors facing the challenges of dementia. Memory care residents enjoy enclosed outdoor patios and gardens, entertainment and group outings. Call Heritage Pointe at 949.364.9685 or visit www.HeritagePointe.org for additional information.
