When I first met Lona it was as a cytotechnologist when I would come from Pueblo to help Lona, Jennifer, and Phil with their heavy workloads and procedures. Lona was the first person I met and she so friendly and helpful in showing me around and getting aquatinted with Penrose hospital. Lona was always smiling and friendly. Even though I retired, I will miss her sweet personality. God bless you in heaven Lona! --Randy Pocius 😢
