Charlotte (Strange) Scarcelli ’65 retired in December 2009 from Purdue University. Since then she’s been volunteering at University Place, a retirement community co-sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters and Purdue. She also volunteers at Franciscan Sisters Hospice program, and says she receives so much more from her patients than she gives. In 2011, she published a children’s book titled “The Secret of the Old House”, which features all five of my children and their spouses and all seven of my grandchildren in a story about the Underground Railroad. Charlotte says “so much of what I learned at the Mount comes into play in all that I do these days.”
