Shenandoah Memorial Hospital (Va)

Description

For residents at the Shenandoah County Memorial Hospital’s Extended Care Facility, Eva Mobley was a welcome site. As a volunteer at the facility in the 1970s, she played games with patients, helped feed them meals, and conducted a weekly story telling event, complete with pictures.

Eva spent most of her adult life travelling with her husband Robert Mobely, a career soldier. After his retirement, they eventually moved to a mountain house near the Bryce Resort. After a fall forced her to stop working as a knitter at the Aileen plant, she became a devoted volunteer at the hospital and active member of the Woodstock Nazerene Church where she headed the Christian Life Program and an adult Sunday School Class. She observed “getting involved with others helps get your mind off your own problems”

Eva’s husband died in 1985. She currently lives in Winter Springs Florida.
