Jane Murdock - 2003-08-28
I have always been a social
worker and spent a very long time working for the State of Missouri. Got
sober January 21, 1981. Earned my Masters of Social Work at Washington
University, St. Louis, in 1990, moving into community health and family
Lived in Kansas City for a couple
of years where I worked at Truman Medical Center and survived a 1993 bout
of breast cancer (one of my Truman MC residents did the mastectomy!).
Moved to Arizona in 1994 and
love the weather -- it's a DRY heat!!! The last 7 years I have been
a hospice social worker, now working with Hospice of the Valley in the
Phoenix area, as part of a team serving terminally ill patients and their
families in their homes. My role is to help with "business things"
and to provide emotional support to help everyone cope as illness progresses
to its natural outcome. This is THE most rewarding work I have ever
done and a marvelous culmination to a social work career.
retired in 2013 from Hospice of the Valley and have moved into
Phoenix. Nowadays, I enjoy a whole lot of music: singing Alto 1 in a
Valley Women's Ensemble and Phoenix Women's Chorus; doing open mics
playing Folk Songs from the '60's, Women's Music, humorous songs
written by talented songwriters, which I am not!
The 50th Reunion was so
much fun! I loved seeing and talking with everyone and hope to attend more
