LUCINDA SMITH – Social Service Aid

-Tenure at Good Samaritan: 32 and ½ years!

-Most rewarding part of her job: “My residents! They are what get me out of bed every morning! Spending time with them is what I live for!

-When she’s not working, she’s…: “On my Harley on the highway or on the river in my kayak!”

-Favorite sports team: “It’s all about Daaaaaa’ Bears!

-Something most people don’t know: “I’m actually shy!”

Happy Birthday
