Carol joined the Beacon Staff in January 2014. She came to Beacon from the legal field where she worked 40+ years. She quickly took hold, streamlining the administrative policy and procedures of the agency to work smoothly in support of Beacon’s ministries. She handles the management of the office, as well as all of the financial matters, reporting to the Treasurer of the Board. Since March 2017, she has also undertaken the job of Furniture Ministry Director, coordinating deliveries to people in need and scheduling furniture donation pickups on the first and third Saturdays of each month (weather permitting). In addition to her Beacon duties, she is Vice President of the Community Interfaith Food Pantry Board of Directors after spending five years as its Secretary, takes the minutes at the Backbone Support Group meetings on the first Thursday of each month, and is also a Board Member of the Belleville Chamber of Commerce. Carol retired from Beacon in January 2019. She passed away November 22, 2020 after a long battle with lung cancer. Her service to Beacon and the wider community left some very large footprints to fill.
