Meet Our Family

“I remember the first day I walked in the door of St. Joseph’s Residence, I felt like I was in heaven. After my conversation with Sr. Lorraine (who was the DON then) and learned more about the mission of the Little Sisters of the Poor, I knew then that this place was meant for me. I believe that our Lord led me here to continue my vocation to take care of the elderly and follow the mission of the Little Sisters of the Poor.”

Violeta de los Reyes, R.N., Director of Nursing

Doreen Pyrek had been a hairstylist in Enfield for over 42 years and was the former owner of the “The Ultimate Cut” salon for 5 years. She is our Resident “hair dresser” at St. Joseph’s residence. Doreen started as a fill-in and 7 years later she works 3 days a week beautifying our residents. Doreen says “Working here is like being part of an extended Family”.

Lisa Griffin, our new receptionist comes to us from Enfield. Her Mom is also a Resident of St. Joseph. Lisa is quite familiar with St. Joseph Residence as she filled in performing different jobs at the Home before accepting the receptionist position. Lisa is the daytime receptionist, greeting all who enter the Home and doing clerical work as well. She is the “face” of St. Joseph Residence.
