Sadly, Carolyn Simpkins, Hanover Humane’s valued and loved volunteer, passed away on 10.17.13. Carolyn loved the cats and kittens in Hanover Humane’s Adoptions Program, and, for over eight years, she could always be found volunteering in the Petsmart at Virginia Center or in Mechanicsville. Despite her busy work schedule, Carolyn always found time to help out in the Adoption Center and would spend hours socializing the animals, cleaning the Center and linens, and handling volunteer tasks in the Center. She always had a smile and kind work for everyone, and, even when her illness progressed, she still maintained a personal interest in the animals, always checking to see how they were.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and the other volunteers with Hanover Humane, we would like to extend our heartfelt sympathy to Carolyn’s family for their loss. To honor Carolyn’s memory and commemorate her long-time volunteer efforts, Hanover Humane has ordered an engraved Memorial Leaf which will be placed on its Honor Tree.
Everyone that volunteered with Carolyn loved her a great deal, and we will all miss her dearly.
