Entered: January 4, 1944
Current Ministry: Ministry of Prayer
Motto: Thou in me and I in Thee

After serving many years in nursing service, nursing education, prison ministry, and chemical dependence counseling, I was called to the gift of old age. For me, old age is a calling and very much a part of living. While enjoying all of my other ministries and helping those in need, I love the quiet time now in a beautiful environment that this time provides. It is a time to be present for others in need through visits, phone calls, and creating a prayer list of the family of staff members who confide in me. And it is a precious time for me to reflect on my own journey. I am grateful to be part of Mercy serving in the world. As I respond to this call, the gift of aging, I prayerfully await my final call.
