Jefferson Award: Carol Maslowski

Posted:

NOTE: Each month we introduce you to an individual recognized for their volunteer efforts with a Jefferson Award.  Unfortunately,  our September award winner Carol Maslowski-- passed away august 10th.  

The award  selection committee felt Carol was a true example of the volunteer spirit..  and we are sharing her story through the words of those who knew here.

Tom Maslowski/husband:"I am going to miss her and I know everyone at the Lincoln Center will miss her too."  Tom Maslowski loves sharing memories of wife  who lost her two year battle with cancer last month.

Just about everyone who knew Carol called her "the silent angel" because volunteering was a way of life for her.. Reading in schools..and baking holiday treats through her church and community organizations.

Kathy Fandre/Holly Shoppe Manager:"She always had an ear to listen and just that kind of person that was always giving. Carol spent thousands of hours volunteering at the Holly Shoppe inside the Lincoln Center in Stevens Point. It's  place where people with disabilities and seniors, sell arts and crafts. Many things made by carol, and donated to raise money for the center, still  sit on the shelves.

Then there's her garden.. Where thousands of plants were planted.. Nurtured and then to benefit the Lincoln Center. Every step of the way she showed family and friends what it means to give selflessly. Tom:"It's important to give without expecting anything in return and to help out. "

A legacy which lives on through "the silent angel's"  family and friends. Kathy:"She is looking out over our shoulders and we will carry on the torch for her."
