It’s not uncommon to find multiple family members serving at the same Society location. In fact, one family served for more than five decades at Good Samaritan Society – Olathe in Olathe, Kansas.

It began with Dorothy Dalbey, RN, who worked at the location from the late 1960s to the early 1970s as a charge nurse.

Dorothy’s daughter, Barbara Walker, RN, began working at Olathe in mid-1973, spending most of her years as the director of nursing. She retired in 1998.

Barbara’s daughter Cindy Hahn, worked part-time in the activities department assisting residents with crafts and baking during the summer of 1974. She began working full time in May 1977 as the director of health information management, a position she held until her retirement in December 2021.

Each woman had a passion to serve people in need and found their calling with the Society.
