Jean Wigglesworth has volunteered for Joshua’s House for more than 3 years
now and she feels that there is no better way to serve! It was no coincidence that she began as the Board Secretary shortly after she retired from UC Davis. And since then she’s also been a member of
the Sip, Savor, and Sway Gala com-
mittee and she, along with family members, has participated directly in many of Joshua’s House’s fundraising endeavors.
To state that Jean wears many hats would be an understatement. In addition to her work with Joshua’s House, she is also a licensed Interfaith Minister,
a volunteer with Sutter Care at Home, and she recently completed the INELDA (International End of Life Doula Association) training. Says Jean, “My career was always in the service arena, and I was drawn to hospice
after I was with my sister, mother, and my best friend at their end of life.” When Jean heard Marlene’s incredible story and learned about the needs of the homeless population, it just made sense for her to support the organization.
The Joshua’s House mission, to provide a safe home for those experiencing homelessness at the end of their life, is one that Jean feels all should endorse and support. “We will work with each dying person to support them emotionally, spiritually, and physically; and help them spend their last days of life on their terms. Please join me in supporting Joshua’s House by giving of your time, talents, or money” says Jean.
