Always calm, always smiling, and always ready with a sense of humor, Deborah Ann Weatherwax has been one of the Pasadena Senior Center’s most active volunteers for over 20 years.
Debbie, now 81, retired in the 1980s after 34 years in banking. She first started coming to PSC in the 1990s, drawn by the pool tables. She still plays pool, and has won multiple gold medals in Billiards over the years at the Pasadena Senior Games hosted by the Senior Center.
It wasn’t very long after discovering the Pasadena Senior Center that Debbie started volunteering in the kitchen. She then met Cynthia Rosedale, the late Special Events Director. Like so many volunteers, to meet Cynthia was to get involved in volunteering for myriad events, and Debbie was willingly pulled into volunteering for Concerts in the Park, the Conference on Healthy Aging, Pasadena Senior Games, holiday parties, and other events. Debbie continues to volunteer at most PSC events, as well as regularly volunteering two days a week for the Center’s hot lunch program.
An avid reader, as well as pool player, Debbie’s other hobby is traveling. She takes vacation time from her busy volunteer schedule to go on cruises, but somehow still manages to be at almost every major Senior Center event. A true part of the Pasadena Senior Center team, she embodies PSC’s theme of #AgeWell!
