"Enjoyed Her Many Years at Wesley House"
note is presented in memory of my mother, Nell M. Owen. Mom served as
receptionist at Wesley House for 21 years under the supervision of Ms. Helen
Mandlebaum, deaconess. Mom's desk was in the lobby, close to the front door.
She greeted people as they came in, answered the phones, and sold candy. She
also worked some evenings. Local basketball teams would use the Wesley House
gymnasium for practice. They could rent it for $2.00 per team.
We lived at 804 E. Washington St. [just across from Wesley House]. Mother
enjoyed her many years at Wesley House and would have quite a variety of
stories to tell if she were alive. She died in 1968 at the age of 79.
