In November 2021, we celebrated having served the community for one hundred thirteen years.
Also, in November we accepted, with regret, the resignation of our longtime Director, Tammy Kruger. We were blessed to have Tammy as our director for the last twenty-five years. At the end of 2021 she moved on to retirement and a well-deserved time of leisure and time with her family.
And so, in 2022, Tammy's retirement marked the beginning of a new era in the life of Willing Helpers’ Home for Women.
Tammy served us well and was truly the face and voice of Willing Helpers for all of those years.
She represented us well in the community and made Willing Helpers’ feel like home to the
residents and all who entered the building. We are truly grateful for her service and dedication.
In January of 2022 we welcomed Fawn Quinn as our new director. Fawn is a part of our local
community and has made every effort to maintain the level of service and high standards of care
that is tradition at Willing Helpers. Fawn and Tammy have worked together to make the
transition a smooth one.
Here, Tammy (on the left) and Fawn (on the right) are pictured together as we christened our new gazebo at our annual summer picnic.
On August 16th, 2018, Nancy Vandenburgh was recognized for her 28 years of service to Willing Helpers' Home for Women. Nancy began her service in 1990. She served for 13 years (1996-2009) as recording secretary and served 6 years as board president (2009-2015). Nancy remains an active board member today.
Current board president, Nelva Teabout, presented Nancy with a bouquet of yellow roses. The yellow roses are symbolic because they were the favorite flower of Rose Knox, who donated the home to the Willing Helpers' Society in 1906, and served as president of the board for many years.
