In June, we learned that Mary Pedersen, Take Care’s Leadership Strategic Partner and former Director of Human Resources, had been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. With heavy hearts we share that Mary passed on Tuesday, 9/18, surrounded by family in her home. She leaves behind a beautiful 6-year-old granddaughter, Lola, who was the apple of her eye; her husband, Bob; son Jason and daughter-in-law, Alyssa. Mary loved her family deeply.
Mary will be missed by so many. Mary’s impact on Take Care reached far and wide. She is credited for molding and creating a strong Human Resources department and for paving the way for the Leadership Team in its creation and continuation— only to name a few of her significant contributions.
In an email from Mary in July, she wrote:
“As I have said so many times, my years with Take Care, working with all of you, have been the most fulfilling of my long career. I gained a family “my Take Care Family” and no words can express what I feel in my heart. Life is so precious so I wish good health and happiness for all of you! With love and gratitude, Mary.”
If you wish to send a note of sympathy, please bring your card to any Take Care office to the Front Desk or Office Coordinators and we will ensure Mary’s family receives them.
Our thoughts are with Mary’s family at this time.
