Long-time volunteers at Sauk Prairie Healthcare retire after a combined 84 years of service


With a combined contribution of 84 years, three long-time volunteers have officially retired from volunteering at Sauk Prairie Healthcare (SPH). All three remained active until Covid brought a pause to volunteers onsite at SPH in 2020. Ruth Dresser, Prairie du Sac, and Genya Galarnyk, Plain, both served 26 years and Florentine Breunig, Sauk City, served 32 years. All of them worked the majority of their time in the SPH Gift Shop during their time volunteering. Ruth continued with filling in for more shifts in the shop that any other volunteer right up until the 2020 pause. Genya became affectionately named “The Orchid Lady” after her orchid skills and donations brought the beautiful orchids to flourish in our hospital lobby. Florentine most recently helped with greeting and canteen duties at SPH blood drives and events. Now part of our Emeritus Club, we thank all three for their support and years of service to SPH. Each has left a legacy of embracing volunteerism and remain role models for those who served with them and for those who come behind them. We will forever be grateful for their support.
