Mary Jo Keffer, a volunteer in the Rockford office, is a former business education teacher at the high school level. Besides her wonderful personality and positive attitude, she is extremely proficient with the Microsoft Office Suite and she’s always willing to share her knowledge with the staff.
“The Rockford Office is extremely fortunate to have found Mary Jo,” said Lorita Ooyen, Rockford Office Manager. “She is like a life preserver that was tossed to me in the middle of the ocean! I was looking for an individual with Microsoft Office skills in Publisher, Word and Excel and she came to my rescue. She has been working on updating our Tips and Tricks and has already donated 67 hours since June 2011.”
In addition to her time volunteering in our Rockford office, Mary Jo also has other volunteer responsibilities, including:
- Serving on the Advisory Board and teaching for the Center for Learning and Retirement at Rock Valley College
- Does various volunteer activities at her church including hospital visitations, driving the elderly, Christmas Basket program co-chairperson, the parish Diocesan Stewardship Campaign, and member of the Woman’s Guild Board
- Serves on the Board of Directors and is the supervisory committee chairperson for the Winnebago County Schools Credit Union
- Rockford ProAm Golf Tournament ticket chairperson
It’s hard to understand how she has any time left for the Alzheimer’s Association! We consider ourselves fortunate to have such a valuable volunteer and friend.
Thank you for everything you do, Mary Jo!
