We know that Dr. Washington had a long history of service to the community. 


We are so grateful that she shared some of that time with the Ecumenical Senior Center as our Executive Director.  On behalf of our seniors, volunteers, board and staff, we want to thank her for the tremendous impact she had on the center and our entire community.  

May she rest in peace
