Mary Jane Dimmer

Parish Nurse
I have been Trinity‚Äôs parish nurse for more than 5 years, following completion of the 10 week parish nurse certification course offered at Unity Point, Rock Island.  The most difficult part of the process was obtaining my Illinois nursing license, even though I had practiced as an R.N. in Iowa for 30+ years, the process was very Slow.  I enjoy teaching different aspects of wellness, chronic disease processes-management and prevention and enjoy hearing of the different experiences-faith and health, of all the parishioners.  It is quite an experience to walk with the multi-ages at Trinity in their journey.  When not at Trinity I enjoy time with my 6 grandchildren and 3 adult children and their spouses, camping, biking, fishing and just being with them in family outings.
