Mom was a kind and giving person. As far back as I can remember, she was always thinking of others. She was a brownie leader and a room mom when we were in elementary school.
She read news stories on the radio to the visually impaired. I remember her looking through the Grapevine (our local newspaper) for interesting articles to read to the blind. She just had that kind of voice that was soothing. For many years she comforted and even entertained many listeners performing that important task.
Mom lead tours at Kaiser Permanente Hospital for parents-to-be. She loved babies so this was the perfect volunteer opportunity for her. I believe she had over 800 hours of giving tours to lucky soon-to-be parents. I remember she used to tell them to have their babies on Tuesday so she could meet their new little one. Countless times babies were born on Tuesdays and she was so excited when the parents found her and told her about their new little bundle of joy. She loved that job!
In this picture she is with her granddaughter, Jill. Mom put on Jill's clothes and Jill put on Grandma Alice's Kaiser Permanente volunteer uniform.
