With the passing last weekend of Kathy Marshall, the Upper Valley community lost one of its most gentle and devoted friends of those in need of caring, especially children with special needs and their families. As a board member of SNSC for many years, she worked in her quiet but tirelessly and dedicated manner to help those children and families in need of the unique SNSC services. As a founding member of the Early Childhood Mental Health Network (of which SNSC acts as fiscal agent and special supporter) she focused her concern for young children and their families who found themselves challenged by life’s difficulties. Kathy headed a special initiative of the Network in 2006 and almost single-handedly made successful “Healthy Babies/Healthy Children”, an ambitious project that infused early childhood mental health into primary care, early intervention, and the community mental health center. Even after retiring from the SNSC board, Kathy continued her service as a member of the Annual Giving Campaign in spite of her declining health condition. SNSC has lost a wonderful supporter with Kathy’s passing. We will all miss her.
