The Arc of Atlantic County sadly lost one of its longest tenured family support associates, Lesa Keener, when she passed away April 29th. Lesa had been a respite worker for The Arc since 1986, providing respite care for three different families over the years. She also worked with our Saturday and Sunday programs and Life Skills. Lesa was also a librarian at the Brigantine Library, which hosted a memorial open house in her honor last week. Today, the Press of Atlantic City’s Hometown section for Brigantine/Atlantic City/Pleasantville features a story about Lesa and the impact she made on the community. Please take a moment to read below about the beautiful tribute to this caring, compassionate and generous person who is sincerely missed by many.
