“I just kind of knew from about the age of 14 that was what the Lord had given me the gifts to do and to be."
That's what Mary Lou Whitten said, in regard to her notable and lengthy work and contributions in the nursing/teaching field.
“I also had a favorite aunt, Fleeta Mattes, who was a nurse, and I think just being around her and watching her probably contributed to it. But I felt the Lord gave me the gifts and I just took it from there. I never even thought about being anything but a nurse.”
