We have some sad news to share for those of you who haven't heard. Retired CTR, Paulette Bethune-Montes suffered bilateral brain aneurysms in November. Happily she survived but not without a serious set-back and difficult challenges ahead.
Over the past years, Paulette has been a huge supporter of OCRA, serving as President, other offices and on many committees. She has been a mentor to numerous CTRs in her career. She retired after 40 plus years with Kaiser Permanente. In 2014, Paulette married the love of her life, Mark Montes.
Mark and Paulette have a strong faith, love and devotion to each other to help them through her long road to recovery. But they are sure to need additional support as she requires home care. Martha Curl is organizing financial donations so if you would like to contribute, please contact her at Martha.firstname.lastname@example.org. Any cards or letters of support would also be greatly appreciated. You can contact Martha or Vicki Shindler at Shinbones2@yahoo.com for any further information or to obtain Paulette's address.
