Everyone has a story, and Judy Parvin has met a lot of people. She’s an interim director of nursing at the Good Samaritan Society and travels across the country to different locations as part of her job.

In winter 2017, she met a woman with what may sound like a unique story, but it sounded all too familiar to Judy.

A family connection

The woman’s husband was a resident at Good Samaritan Society – Grand Island Village in Nebraska. He needed a treatment that required a staff member to supervise for a while. Judy was on duty and sat with him.

“His wife was visiting, and we got to talking,” Judy remembers. “She started talking about her relationship to Dad Hoeger’s wife.”
