What a pleasant surprise today. Marilyn Aulis and Kathleen O’Malley came back to visit Doolittle Home after working here nearly 47 years ago. Marilyn’s mother was the head of housekeeping and that is how she started working here as a teenager into her 20’s. Kathleen’s mother in law, Madelyn, was the Executive Director of Doolittle Home, where Kathleen was a nurses aid.
Stories were shared about dignitaries arriving at Doolittle Home for tea and snacks after Foxboro Field Day, their fond experiences here, how residents used to pitch in with washing dishes, and explained that Foxboro was a small tight knit community.
“Hairdressing was in the basement next to the kitchen, and Mrs. Willard talked about the Civil War.” Kathleen explained.
This is what makes Doolittle Home so special. Even after 47 years, there is a special place in the hearts of those touched by The Doolittle Home.
