Bay community services assistant retires
The City of Bay Village said goodbye to Shirley Hostetler after 16 years. Shirley retired Oct. 3 from the City, where for the past 12 years she served as assistant to the director of Community Services, manager of the Dwyer Memorial Senior Center, and coordinator of Meals on Wheels.
Shirley’s love for seniors, and her dedication to assist them in any way she could made her a beloved member of the Dwyer Center family. Penny Dolski, a volunteer at the center, describes Shirley as “‘a champion of the seniors who needed help. She always listened to them and tried to answer their questions, researching until she found an answer. She was known for tucking little notes and cards in with the meals of the Meals on Wheels she coordinated. We will miss her.”
Added Leslie Selig, director of Community Services, “Although I only had the pleasure of working with Shirley for a short while, it was apparent how much she loved the seniors, and how much she genuinely cared about them. She worked hard and with compassion every single day to make their lives better. She will be hard to replace.”
