Mrs. Ann Erbes
Dear Shepherd's Center Family,
It is with a heavy heart that I share this incredibly shocking news. Mrs. Ann Erbes, a great friend, mentor and remarkable activist for The Shepherd' Center passed away suddenly on Saturday, November 12 along with her husband, Conny Erbes, her sister Theresa Eng and her husband Jakob Eng in a horrific car accident near the Eastern Shore.
Ann starting teaching quilting along with her best friend, Felia Ayalas at our Adventures In Learning in 2003. Through the many years, Ann has been right there keeping the mission alive and well for our seniors. Ann's faith, passion and willingness to give of herself to others showed every day. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.
Ann served the Shepherd's Center in many ways. She provided over 100 door prizes and raffle items for our annual fund raisers. Ann served as the president of the Blushing Ewes, a red hatter chapter dedicated to helping the Shepherd's Center as their mission.
Ann's passing is such a tremendous loss for The Shepherd's Center's family.
Please keep Ann's dear niece Terry Ann Izzo and their family in your thoughts and prayers as they grieve and try to get through this sorrowful time.

We NEED Volunteer Drivers and Office Staff
The Shepherd's Center of Chesterfield has an urgent need for volunteer drivers to transport seniors to medical appointments and the grocery store, and for phone receptionists to receive calls and schedule rides. Receptionists would work from the Shepherd's Center office at 6800 Lucy Corr Blvd. Areas in need of drivers include Chesterfield County, Colonial Heights, Chester, Hopewell and Prince George.
Can you help by offering a few hours to either provide or arrange a ride?
Without new volunteer drivers, our clients will be placed on a waiting list for their critical medical and grocery shopping transportation needs. You can make a difference in the community by volunteering only a couple of hours a month!
The Shepherds Center of Chesterfield, a non-profit inter-faith organization, offers free, accompanied transportation, in-home handyman services, and low-cost classes to adults over 50.
Become a part of this close-knit volunteer community; you may need their help someday, too! Call The Shepherds Center of Chesterfield at (804) 706-6689 or submit a Volunteer Interest Form now.
