It is with great sadness that we tell you of the passing this week of two women very important to Our Hope. Sister Roberta Hefferan, a founder and long-time supporter of Our Hope, passed away on May 18 at age 84. Mrs. Nancy Palmer Mueller, Executive Director of Our Hope from 1974-1995 and a highly valued advisor since her retirement, passed away at her Grand Rapids home on May 19 at age 89. Both women will be greatly missed for their compassion and contributions to Our Hope and the surrounding Grand Rapids community.
