Volunteer returns home after 100th national disaster deployment | Health
A local nurse with the American Red Cross returned to Owensboro after her 100th national disaster deployment.
Marilou Goodfell recently returned from Mississippi where she worked in several towns helping peole whose homes were destroyed by a tornado. She helped with health services by providing meals and helping people with shelter. Goodfell has been a volunteer with the American Red Cross since 1996 and has helped in Guam and has loved helping people since she was a young girl.
"When I came back and got off the plane they said, 'Well, are you going to retire?' I said, 'No, not until they throw dirt on my face.' I'm sure there will be more," she said.
