Kathryn Felstet
Foster Grandparents — Missoula Aging Services, Missoula, MT
 
Kathryn Felstet retired recently after putting in 25 years as a Foster Grandparent. The longest-serving Foster Grandparent in Montana, she was the first Foster Grandparent to complete a quarter century of service in Montana, where she served with the Missoula Aging Services Foster Grandparent Program, beginning in 1980. While caring for her husband, who has suffered a stroke, she heard about Foster Grandparents from a neighbor who was also nursing an ailing husband. She saw Foster Grandparents as a way to get out of the house. Originally, she intended to contribute a few years to the program, but she just kept going. Over the years, she served in three locations but always with the Head Start Program, where she played games, read stories, and created artworks with preschoolers. She enjoyed not only the children, but also getting to know faculty members and making friends with other Foster Grandparents. Although she is no longer an official Foster Grandparent, she anticipates missing the program when school starts again in the fall, and she intends to visit frequently.
