Mourning the loss of four special women


Make text smaller Make text larger





Unfortunately, four very special women recently departed from our midst. One of these individuals was Maribeth Lincoln who was a devout Christian and an upbeat person with a ready smile, another was Barbara Ayers. She was a bubbly woman whose whole being shone with her love and devotion to God. She was a dynamo. The third, Dorothy LaPrelle, was a wonderful, spiritual woman.

She was extremely positive, kind and loving. Last, but not least, is Linda Love Hunter-Conklin who was extremely courageous in her actions during the period the Homestead Nursing Home was in jeopardy of being privatized. Linda, who was a resident at that time, took on the challenge of attempting to prevent that. I would oftentimes see her sitting outside in all kinds of weather in her wheelchair trying to get others involved in her endeavors. Because of Linda’s dedication to her cause I had to get on board to try to also help her.

All of the above women hold a special place in my heart. Oftentimes their images come floating before me. They have all left an impact on my life in different ways. I looked up to and admired each of them. I am hereby honoring all of them for the encouraging lives they lived. I feel very privileged that they were a part of my life for even a brief phase. They will forever be remembered by me and all those who knew and loved them.
