She was their go to person and prayer warrior when needed.

For most of Parthena’s life, she worked tirelessly as a CNA around the Warsaw and Wabash areas, loving the patients she cared for over the years. She enjoyed fishing, tending to her flowers, and making various crafts for her home when she found time. She was known by many for her baking and cooking skills.
