The CIL recently received some devastating news. Sadly, our dear Rose lost her brief battle with COVID last week. She was part of our CIL family for over 12 years. Rose had a caring heart and provided excellent service to our consumers. Even during these unusual times, Rose used her personal phone to assist consumers with what they needed. She had a wealth of knowledge about the community and services available and was always learning more.
In addition to assisting our consumers, Rose was very helpful to our CIL team. She was always willing to assist where she could in between her receptionist duties and was especially helpful in the ADA Paratransit process. Rose went out of her way to help staff, the center and our consumers. The office will never be the same without her.
Rose had a large family and she was especially excited about the recent birth of her twin granddaughters. All of us here at the CIL are sending many thoughts and prayers to her family during this very difficult time. It is hard for us to imagine not seeing her wonderful smile and hear her infectious laugh and encouraging words. We will miss you always Rose!
