Maytag Salutes: Colleen Riley
28 May, 2016
Name: Colleen Riley
Hometown: Copley, OH
Why we are saluting Colleen:
Working as a nurse for 44 years, Colleen feels that it’s the patients and families she’s cared for that are the true heroes, though they’d probably say she’s just being modest. As recognition of her dedicated service over the past four decades, Colleen was awarded Nurse of the Year honors.
Since retiring, Colleen has continued to help where she can, volunteering as a part time patient assistant at the hospital and donating her time and money to other fund raisers and charities.
Colleen says that it was the people she cared for that gave her inspiration, but those same people would tell you that it was her kindness and care that helped give them the strength to keep going.
