Joyce O'Connor
Joyce O'Connor served as seven terms as President, but especially loved her role as "Sunshine Chairman". She was a remarkable woman and valued volunteer for over 30 years. Joyce shared this memory of her Auxiliary service for our web site in 2004. Joyce passed away in 2005.

"In 1960, my youngest child started first grade and my mornings were suddenly free. Back then our lobby was on Lincoln Street. We stood (for four hours!) awaiting an opportunity to deliver a patient, papers, or flowers to a floor. Since then I’ve worked as in escort, menu service, gift cart, coffee cart, information desk, and flowers. I also served as Auxiliary President.

Everyone gets such a feeling of satisfaction from their service... serving others keeps us young at heart."
