A 93-year-old woman from Arvada was recently honored by the Seniors’ Resource Center for her many years of volunteer service.
Geraldine “Gerry” Johansson has volunteered at the Apex Community Center for 13 hours a month for 34 years.
“As Gomer Pyle would say, `golly, thank you, thank you, thank you,” Johansson said to laughter at the awards event, according to a recent Apex news release.
The Seniors’ Resource Center is a nonprofit provider of information, services and advocacy for seniors in the Metro Denver area. It recently honored a group of volunteers, including Johansson.
“Through Gerry’s efforts and talents with crafts, she helped the Apex Center raise funds for projects such as purchasing automatic doors, lobby furniture and kitchen appliances for community use,” wrote Dale Marshall, volunteer specialist at the center, adding that despite receiving a pacemaker 28 years ago and a few replacement parts, Johansson has not slowed down. “At 93 years young, she amazes everyone with her humor, wisdom and hard work.”
