We would like to thank everyone who attended & volunteered for the Memorial Service for Mary A. Beittel, who served so many years by the side of her husband, Kent Beittel as Executive Team of The Open Shelter. It was heartwarming to see so many familiar faces come out to pay respect to her memory. Thank you to Broad Street United Methodist Church, St. Agatha & Our Lady Of Peace Parishes for helping.
Rita Price wrote a wonderful article for The Columbus Dispatch about the service. We also would like to thank Barbara J. Perenic for poignant pictures of the service.

Please consider making a contribution to continue Mary’s legacy of helping the homeless and marginally housed in our community. Thank You.
