Volunteer Spotlight: Sue Taylor

What brought you to RiverBend?

For almost 40 years I worked at Elkhart General Hospital as an office manager. I retired

earlier this year. I knew right away I’d need to volunteer somewhere—I couldn’t just stop

working after all those years. A friend of mine is a client here—she’s going through her

own cancer journey. She told me about their need for volunteers. I knew how it’s helped

her, and I thought it would be a good place to spend my time.

What do you do for RiverBend?

At first, I was brought on to be a greeter—welcoming people, pointing them in the right

direction. When they realized I could help with organizing and developing processes, they

placed me in more of a behind-the-scenes role. I help out wherever they need me, but for

the most part I help them keep track of clients’ needs.

What’s the best thing about this organizatio


The facility itself is incredible. And the work they do is unlike anything I’ve seen. Once I

got here and started seeing everything they do for cancer survivors, it made me feel so

glad to be part of it. It’s a place that’s nice to come to. The people here are just great,

actually everything about it is great. I just love it.

What did you do for fun?

I like to exercise; I work out 7-8 hours a week. I also like to camp, and do pretty much anything outdoors. I love spending time with my nine grandkids, reading and knitting.

Your philosophy toward volunteering?

I volunteer because it makes me feel good and I hope I am helping others through my volunteering. I look forward to getting more
