Barbara Kazen passes away :(

Minda Casso of the NBC Affiliate KGNS has just written the following:

Barbara Kazen, President of the Board of Directors for Bethany House

SAD NEWS TO REPORT: An outstanding member of our community has passed away. Ms. Babara Kazen, who worked tirelessly on behalf of Bethany House and the homeless in Laredo, died today from an illness. Through her efforts, KGNS was able to partner each year for our annual Mission Give event which helps the homeless. Tune in to Pro 8 News at 5, 6 and 10 as we report with a heavy heart on her life and contributions.

She was a beautiful person inside and out, tough but a sweetheart. Her work for the homeless in Laredo was tremendous and she served as a mentor for many people in the nonprofit field. She had been ill for some time and those who knew her respected her privacy. Ms. Kazen is best known for her years of work with Bethany House and she will definitely be missed. Rest in peace, Barbara Kazen.
