Reflecting on 50 Years – A Letter from Gemma Geisman

To prepare for the OIF’s 50th anniversary, OIF Founder Gemma Geisman wrote a beautiful letter reflecting on the OI Foundation’s accomplishments and activities since 1970. Her daughter, Cathy, shared this letter with the OI community in Gemma’s Corner
Gemma was creative, passionate, and a wonderful listener. She listened to learn about you, she listened to find out how to help you, and she listened because she cared about you.
Gemma’s Corner, created in memory of Gemma, encourages the OI community to keep sharing with each other, caring for each other, and providing support to one another.
