In Memoriam

Katherine Keating, Crystal O'Neil & Donna Church

This summer, we lost three beloved members of our Jawonio family: Katherine Keating, Job Developer Community Employment Services, Crystal O’Neil, resident of our Bobbi Lewis Group Home and participant in our Sunrise Court Day Habilitation Program and Donna Church, who lived at our Levy House Group Home.

“[Katherine] was very passionate about her work and cared deeply about those she helped. She was a strong advocate for the individuals on her caseload and many others that came to Jawonio seeking assistance over the past 13 years. She was a mentor to her colleagues and shared her knowledge freely with those she worked with.”

– Randi Rios-Castro, CEO.

“During her time with us, Crystal taught us that you should never give up, always give people a chance and be patient with others. Crystal will always be in our hearts.”

– Jamie Salazar-Storton, Sunrise Court Team Leader

“Crystal had a special place here at the house and she adjusted very well to living here, making friends with everyone. All of us here at Bobbi Lewis house will deeply miss her.”

– Cecile Constable, House Manager

“Donna was a lovely lady, full of spunk and a breath of fresh air.  Donna will be remembered by us all for her infectious smile, along with the sound of her laugh that we can all still hear when we close our eyes.  “DC” was what she requested to be called, had a sense of humor that catered to all. DC has been given a high seat in heaven and will be truly missed by all who had the greatest pleasure to know her.”

– Danielle Lewis, House Manager
