Hi, we are Marilyn and Kerry. We have a long history of volunteering with school, work, and church activities so when we hit our retirement years, with more time to give, it just made sense to continue. The desire to give back to the community was instilled in us by both our parents.
A suicide in the family brought us in close contact with the Chilliwack Hospice Society whose help for our whole family made it an obvious volunteer choice. In 2018, we took the Basic Hospice Training program to be able to devote time at Cascade Hospice. The chance to meet, listen and share life stories has enriched us more than we can say.
When we are not with family (two children and five grandchildren) and friends, you will see us volunteering at Cascade Hospice.
