On December 14th, 2020, Grandma Pokey passed away at home surrounded by family and loved ones after batting Frontotemporal dementia. Pokey had a passionate life-long commitment to social work, child protection services, and foster care, touching many lives during her work at the South Central Community Action Program, Southern Monroe County Mental Health Center, and Middle Way House.
In honor of Grandma Pokey, I joined the Alzheimer's Association by helping raise awareness, and funds for Alzheimer's care, support, and research in hopes that a cure is found one day.
The Bloomington Walk to End Alzheimer's will take place on 09/12/2021 at Switchyard Park, (time TBD). Please reach out to me if you have any questions in regards to the walk.
