My Grandmother, Lorraine Vonglis, was also a volunteer but she dedicated herself to volunteer work her entire life. She was an ambulance volunteer and a volunteer firefighter for many many years. In her later years, she spent her time visiting and caring for others that struggled to take care of themselves. Both of my Grandmothers were the most incredible women and I am so blessed to have called them mine. Unfortunately, in November 2011, my Nana suffered a massive heart attack and passed away suddenly.
Then, less than 2 months later, the first week of January 2012, my Grandmother suffered a stroke and she too passed away. Both were shocking and devastating.
