570 News recognizes those who go “Above and Beyond” in Waterloo Region. Every week we will choose someone who has gone “Above and Beyond” in our community. Tell us who you think is deserving of next week’s award by filling out the nomination form.
This week we shine the spotlight on 77-year-old Audrey Suchotawsky of Kitchener.
She was nominated by her daughter, Kelly Way, who says Audrey is dedicated to her fellow members of the congregation at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Kitchener. “She delivers poinsettias at Christmas time to shut-ins that can no longer make it to church; every Monday she volunteers at ‘Loaves and Fishes’, so she goes in and she serves lunch – coffee, tea; she’ll play a game of euchre with the elderly people there. She’s just a great friend to all of them. She’s just there for anybody who needs her.”
Kelly also says Audrey helps a 102-year-old woman to get to church and visits people who are no longer able to make it to services.
