As we continue the celebration of National Volunteer Week, today we profile Marie Mead, one of the English teachers at Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women.
Originally from Jersey City, Marie is a graduate of St. Dominic Academy and Seton Hall University. Marie and her husband, Bill, have been married since October 1961. They have 4 children and 9 grandchildren.
Marie's ministries include Cornerstone for Women, lector, church choir and hospitality for the homeless through the Family Promise organization. Her interests include regular physical exercise like walking, tennis, swimming, aerobics; activities of family life; meditation and reading.
Marie finds volunteering at the Center to be one of the most satisfying roles of her life: "The Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women provides a delightful respite for learning and socializing, an opportunity for developing new skills and forming new relationships. I am humbled to be involved in this venture."
We are so very grateful to Marie Mead for the passion and compassion she brings to her work here.
