Mother Angeline McCrory
Greetings! My name is Lisa Gruesen and Wednesdays are my days to volunteer in the gift shop at Mother Angeline McCrory Manor. I love visiting with the residents and staff who come to shop for unique gifts, cards and for snacks. My mother, Toni Grilli, who lives at The Villas at St. Therese, walks over every Wednesday afternoon (after bingo!) to sit with me and visit with the residents she knows. In fact, she's the reason I volunteer here. Mom was a patient on the rehabilitation floor and made a full recovery to the Independent Living at The Villas.
We came back often to Mother Angeline to have lunch in the Buckeye Café, and to see if the gift shop was open. I approached Kathy to see if she could use another volunteer to work in the gift shop, so it could be open more days. Now when my mother comes to visit on Wednesdays she sometimes brings hand knit blankets and scarves to donate to the gift shop and she also hands out her famous pizzelle cookies too.
Now that I'm a mother of three grown sons and grandmother to a darling baby girl, I find spending my time here once a week to be both fun and fulfilling at the same time. The staff and residents and their families at Mother Angeline McCrory Manor are a joy!
