The year 2020 is one to be remembered by all. My family, in particular, suffered a great loss this year. My grandmother, Joyce, passed away March 25 in the midst of a global pandemic. Grandma Joyce has been my biggest inspiration growing up. She became a registered nurse in 1953. She continued her career in the medical field as a physicians assistant, and as a parish nurse until 2010. In the year 2010, I became a nurse. I was always fascinated with visiting my grandmother at work and hearing her stories of helping others. I knew since I was a young girl that I would become a nurse. This year has been a bit surreal. I know my grandmother would be proud of me. Health care providers have stepped up to the challenge during this time. I wanted to create a piece to remember her by. I chose to use her signature to create a one of a kind piece. The picture I have attached is from her nursing school graduation in 1953. In the corner is her signature. The necklace is a reminder that I made the right decision to become a nurse and I will always keep her with me.
