What motivates your desire to give back?
I’ve met wonderful, gifted people who’ve brought so much help to me through St. Joseph Hospital through the years. I’d like to say “Thank you” — and doing so makes me feel that we are all a part of this big ministry of caring for, empowering and appreciating the personal efforts of one another.
Why are you supporting the medical center?
I have come home to the Motherhouse of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, which is in the backyard of St. Joseph Hospital, for more than 50 years.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
I like to learn from people. I am energized by the varieties of gifts I experience in Foundation members.
