As a member of her church, Wyndoleen cared for others by opening her home for progressive dinners for the MYF group, helped prepare meals for: family night, homecoming, to honor teachers in the community and for family meals when a death in the family occurred.  A picture of Wyndoleen Housch could be beside the dictionary entry for the term caregiver – an individual such as a family member or guardian, who takes care of a child or dependent adult.
