When Sister Beatha Massawe was given the Maryville Employee of the Month award for July this past Friday, several of her co-workers gave her a hug. Many of her colleagues came to see her receive her well-deserved award.

Sister Beatha Massawe was born in Tanzania, Africa. She was the sixth out of eight siblings. She had four brothers and three sisters.  All her family still resides in Tanzania. She came to the United States in 2000 through the order of the Sisters of the Holy Spirit. She lived in Iowa prior to coming to Oregon where she completed her nurse assistant training. She worked at St. Anthony Nursing Home in Iowa for six years before she moved to Southfield Nursing Home.

In May 2017, she started working in Maryville. In her spare time, Sister Beatha likes to take courses on the internet and tend to her garden. She says she loves working at Maryville because people are warm and welcoming and everyone is willing to help.

Congratulations to Sister Beatha Massawe, Maryville’s July Employee of the Month.
