My mother served as a nurse her entire life. She worked in an emergency ward in the inner city on the graveyard shift when I was young. She moved to a local health clinic to be a nurse for one of the General practitioners in town when I was a young teenager. That job lasted until after I was married. She finished her career working the critical care building at A Developmental Center a few towns over from our home.
Mom has always been a hard worker, with a firm but kind manner and an extremely sharp wit. Here she is at my daughter’s wedding a few years ago sitting with my son Joe.
These days mom lives with me, my sister and my oldest daughter at the Vicarage which has been our family home for something like forty-five years. She has created quite a legacy to leave to the world.
