How do you properly thank a local news broadcaster who always shows up and supports any Mullen Home function she is asked to participate in, no matter the time commitment? This was the perplexing question that faced Sr. Mary Emilie and Sr. Joseph Marie when they wanted to thank Bertha Lynn for being a fabulous Master of Ceremonies at the June 8th Mullen Home’s Diamond & Denim Anniversary Gala. The answer came to them once they saw James Baca’s (Denver Catholic Register photographer) photos of the gala. There was a beautiful picture of Bertha with the six attending Little Sisters of the Poor. The sisters had the picture enlarged and framed.
On Sunday, August 4, 2013 the Little Sisters gave Bertha the picture. She was so surprised and moved by this gesture of thanks. Mother Provincial Marie Christine commented about how much Bertha does for the home. Not only does she MC galas and plays, but Bertha and her family have volunteered during the 2013 Prom/Casino night. Just last month she was spotted shopping at the Mullen Home Garage Sale. Bertha humbled thanked the sisters and told them that they did everything and were the best!
