Focus on Volunteers

Rita Casey


When COVID was raging across the world in early 2021, Rita Casey became increasingly aware that many of her family, friends, and colleagues were simply unaware that choices existed for people at the end of their life and began her journey as a volunteer with EOLCCA, first working with Lynne Calkins on presentations and outreach and later coordinating the Speaker’s Bureau.

With the assistance of many volunteers, Sue Gess and Carolyn Smith, to mention just two, Rita began to explore and deepen the process of training, supporting interested volunteers to do presentations and increase our outreach to raise awareness of end-of-life choices and the work of EOLCCA. A new focus has been outreach to Libraries across the state, with 20+ presentations so far, a project that continues with the good work of many!

Sadly for us, but excitedly for her, Rita will be relocating outside of California at the end of the month to be closer to family. We will miss her greatly, but she has put such a strong program in place, we are confident that we can build on what she has started. Thank you and Good Luck, Rita!!
