I am so sorry to hear of Maralyn’s passing. I was a patient at Westview almost all of July and she was my PCT many days.
She was the last employee that I saw because she discharged me to our car. Such a great loss of a truly caring, compassionate
and hard working PCT to all the patients at Westview. My deep condolences to her family and coworkers.
