Volunteer Spotlight: July
Mary Hill has been volunteering at NESCO for 15 years. She is one of our Front Office Volunteers. You can find her here every Monday morning. When she is volunteering, Mary answers the phone, directs calls to staff, and record program appointments. She also makes calls as needed to remind people of appointments, fax Foot Care Clinic appointment to the appropriate site, and welcomes people who walk into the office needing information.
Mary volunteers because it gives her a feeling of “self-worth” and keeps her mentally alert and attentive to civic issues happening. She enjoys being able to interact with and help with all ages the most.
Outside of NESCO, Mary volunteers at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in various areas two or three times a month. She also enjoys to watch old shows on TV, crochet, do the State Journal’s crossword puzzles, and play solitaire on the computer in her free time.
Mary was born and raised on a farm between Platteville and Dubuque. She moved to Madison after graduating from High School, and married an Airman from Truax Field. Together, they moved to many different states. After her husband passed away, she moved back to Madison in early 1986, and began working as a nurse’s aide at Central Colony. Mary has 9 children, and was in the hospital three times on Mother’s Day with new babies to take home!! She has 21 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, and 7 great, great grandchildren
