Mary Lou Faust
The girl from Long Island majored in Sociology at Hartwick College in Oneonta. After graduation, MARY LOU FAUST decided to remain in Upstate New York. She moved to Binghamton and, except for four years in Massachusetts, has lived here all her adult life.
Mary Lou has enjoyed a career in long-term health care, mostly in non-profit organizations. A Licensed Nursing Home Administrator, Mary Lou was the Administrator at Elizabeth Church Manor in Binghamton for more than 20 years. She retired from that position but was soon asked to fill in, for a short-term, in long term care facilities in Norwich and Cortland. She concluded her career closer to home at Ideal Senior Living Center in Endicott.
Now fully retired, Mary Lou enjoys visiting two sons and three grandchildren in Massachusetts and Connecticut. She continues her life-long pleasures of reading, solving crossword puzzles, and playing bridge. She has retired her tennis racket and now enjoys her favorite sport as a spectator.
A lifelong volunteer, Mary Lou has served her community, church, and profession in innumerable ways. She continues to serve on the Advisory Board of the Decker School of Nursing at Binghamton University and as a Trustee of the G. Clifford and Florence B. Decker Foundation. And in her spare(!) time, she is a hospice volunteer, caring for and comforting terminally ill patients in their own home or nursing home.
Mary Lou was an active member of First Presbyterian Church in Binghamton for many years. When asked what brought her to Trinity, she replied, “Worship, music, and liturgy.”
That’s why a lot of us worship at Trinity! We are glad you are worshipping with us, Mary Lou!
M. Beverly Hosten, MD
kwpk A few years back, I was privileged to attend the wedding of my eldest niece; she had established herself as a competent professional, and I was quietly hoping she would continue to use her birth-name in marriage, reflecting her professional standing. She didn’t. And I zipped my lips. I was reminded of that very recently.
Last month, we had the pleasure of introducing you to Dr. Beverly Dorsey; we got that all wrong, and we apologize! Beverly most kindly pointed out that her professional name is Dr. M. Beverly Hosten, and only when her married name is used, would she be addressed by the last name of Dorsey, in which case her professional title would not be used.
