Acts of Kindness: Congregation honors parish nurse

Acts of Kindness: Congregation honors parish nurse

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Lois has been a nurse all her life, working in different positions in several hospitals. She retired in 2008 after 20 years at Henrico Doctors' Hospital.

But this active 89-year-old still drives all over town comforting the sick and shut-in.

Lois pours her heart into her position as volunteer parish nurse for Trinity Lutheran Church. She visits ailing church members in hospitals, nursing homes and their own homes. She spends time with them before and after surgeries and follows up with them as they recover. At church, she administers flu shots and does blood pressure checks.

Lois also educates parishioners about  diseases and wellness issues and helps them understand medical procedures and terminology.

Congregation members say Lois is a humble angel who deserves our Acts Of Kindness recognition.
