After nearly 40 years working for Catholic Care on 23rd December Mary Simmons bade a fond farewell to colleagues as she left to start her very well earned retirement. Many of you will know Mary, she has been the heart of the Charity for so long and she will be very sadly missed, not just by the children’s service to which she dedicated her life and also in more recent years the mental health service but by all her colleagues for all the little (and not so little) extras which she undertook – nothing was ever too much trouble. Mary was well known throughout the charity for her timing, her watch had a special “Mary Time” and for her stories of her past experiences. We are all looking forward to her memoirs.!!
We will be inviting Mary back in the summer for a proper send off befitting of 40 years service. In the meantime we wish Mary every health and happiness.
