Dyck and Sue Richard: Four decades have flown by for these MHCO employees

When they accepted jobs at Mennonite Memorial Home, neither Rodney Dyck, nor Sue Richard anticipated that they would still be at MMH four decades later!  Richards recently celebrated her 40th anniversary as an employee of Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio, while Dyck had that honor in 2017. 

Working in two different departments, the long-term employees have similar feelings about working at MMH … Do a good job.  Get to know and understand the residents, and be willing to change to meet the needs of the organization.

City girl to farm wife

A natural transition for Joann Hilty

Maple Crest resident JoAnn Hilty may not have worked her fingers to the bone, but she does have a few bumps on them from years of “knotting” comforters.  A talented quilter and flower arranger, Hilty is a Pandora “city girl” who moved with her husband to a dairy farm near Bluffton at age 18. 

“I didn’t know a thing about farming,” Hilty laughed, “but I found out soon enough why Arthur was always late for our dates. Farming is hard work.  There were cows to milk, calves to feed and chores to finish.”
