This week, we said a bittersweet farewell to one of Lumacare’s longest standing employees, Maria Vitulli, who has retired.

Over her ten years working at the agency, Maria’s outstanding work has made a direct impact on many of our clients. She started her time at Lumacare cooking Sunday brunches at the main office, and eventually took on a role as a full-time cook for our Diner’s Club and Branson Place programs.

A skilled baker, Maria was known across the organization for her wonderful cakes – and even took on special requests! Her focus was always bringing happiness to others, and she is often remembered for her infectious energy as she rode the food carts and danced around in our program space.

While Maria’s daily presence will be missed, we are excited as she takes on this next chapter of her life. Thank you, Maria, for your contributions to Lumacare!
