St. Mary’s hosts 102nd birthday party for a long-time volunteer

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — Intermountain Health St. Mary’s Regional Hospital hosted a birthday party for 102-year-old Shirley Schulz, a remarkable woman who has survived cancer three times and has dedicated over two decades of her life to volunteering for St. Mary’s. She believes that volunteering is essential and finds joy in sorting papers and doing what she calls “grunt work.” According to her, it keeps her going and she receives as much as she gives to the community.

Shirley spent her party dancing with guests and sharing her words of wisdom.
