Congratulations to Sahi Botas! Sahi first began working with the Little Sisters in 1971 at the home located on Dey Street in Paterson. When the two homes in Paterson and Newark merged and opened in Totowa in 1976, Sahi continued her employment as a laundry ironer and seamstress. She takes pride in her work and does a great deal above and beyond for the Residents. Upon hearing her name as recipient of the Saint Jeanne Jugan Award, Sahi said, “Oh thank you! I love the Elderly!” Her devotion and kindness make her highly esteemed amongst her co-workers, and truly appreciated by the Residents and Little Sisters. Sahi thinks of the Little Sisters lovingly and considers them to be her extended family. In February of 2011, Sahi will have been sharing in the spirit of Saint Jeanne Jugan for 40 years!
“Remain little, hidden by humility in all God wants from you, as being only the instruments of his work.” ~ Saint Jeanne Jugan
