Ginny Stewart Pierson
She is doing well mentally,her back has failed her, but she doesn't complain.She remembers where EVERYTHING she owns came from and the story that brought it to her. She remembers conversations from when she was a student to her time at Pitt and Duquesne(sp) and when she was came back to Jameson, it was for the first NLN accreditation, either get accredition or close the school, she believed strongly in the diploma program even though she had received her BSN and 2 Masters. She knows many if not all of the graduates, names, year and where they went off to. She remembers what table cloth I borrowed for my wedding. I wish there were more people like her. I should have paid alittle more attention. The only time she cried was when she read a letter her mother wrote to her father who had abandoned them when she was 2 and Dad was 3. At 80 yrs old that's where her pain lies.She was Director of Nursing when we were there, then she became Sr. Vice President, which is the position she retired from. When we were there her office was on the first floor in the Pediatric Dept. Then she moved up to the 4th floor. It's funny because if she hears news about someone in our class she tells me about it.
