Volunteer Spotlight: Mary Ann Wiegel

Name: Mary Ann Wiegel

How long have you been a volunteer?
Three years.

What areas do you work in/what sort of tasks do you do as a volunteer?
Hospitality cart, caregiver dinner once a month, and the annual events.

What made you decide to become a volunteer?
I like being a volunteer. I think it’s been rewarding to give back and also, the people we serve really appreciate it. That’s what it’s all about. And I’m a healthy person so I can do it.

Why Angela Hospice?
I live in the vicinity.

Mary Ann does the hospitality cart each
week in the Care Center.
What is your favorite part about volunteering?
The people here. It’s a great place to be, everybody’s friendly. And the families we serve dinner for appreciate everything you do. That’s the rewarding part.

What is one of your favorite stories or memories from volunteering?
There’s just too many. Probably talking, conversing with some of the patients who do care to talk to you. You know they appreciate you being in the room and that makes them feel good. Their families also appreciate that…when you come in and perhaps remind them about things like the dinner here and the soup in the kitchen on Mondays.
