May Volunteer of the Month – Marie Carroll
Marie Carroll was born in Punxatawney, PA, but moved to Erie at an early age. Marie has a very, very, long history with Wesbury. As a teenager, Marie was part of a Methodist Youth Group that collected canned goods and would take them to the original Wesbury which was called Ida M. Cribbs Memorial Home in Conneautville, PA. As a student at Allegheny College, Marie was present at the grand opening of what we now call the Cribbs Residential Center. Marie has lived at Wesbury for twelve years and has been a volunteer at Wesbury for ten years. Her favorite volunteer work is reading to residents who are unable to read due to cognitive or visual issues. She also enjoys helping with the Chicken BBQ, transporting residents to church services, and being a part of the Volunteer Pastoral Team at Wesbury. Additionally, Marie is the voice on The Daily Inspiration message which you can listen to by calling extension 9800, which she records every day. In the greater community, she has volunteered with The Erie Blind and Visual Services and is a member of the Methodist Church and the United Methodist Women. Marie has two daughters and enjoys painting in her downtime. She feels that volunteering is a way of giving back. Marie says, “Christ says for us to take care of our neighbors,” and the way she helps take care of her neighbors is by volunteering. Thank you for all you do for your community, Marie!
