Dear Pamela and Laurie,
Although I did not know your mother, I received word of her death from one of our Alumni and I send my heartfelt condolences. Your mothers career in the healthcare field was extraordinary and as a graduate of Saint Joseph's College of Maine, we were very proud of her accomplishments. She would be pleased to know the College is building a Center for Nursing Innovation and The Institute for Integrative Aging. As a nurse who specialized in gerontology, she would be pleased. I will be sure to add Fay Caroline and her family to our prayer list. Blessings to all of you during this difficult time.
Joanne Bean, VP Advancement @ Saint Joseph's College of Maine
