YOUR BCF COORDINATOR
Helping to bring together all the parts to enhance the whole.
Interim BCF Coordinator
Lorna R Gavin has been a member of the Butler County community since 2008, but her love for this county and people has gone back much further. A native of the North Hills of Pittsburgh, she has enjoyed spending more time in Butler County than Allegheny. After starting her business of Aging Gracefully, an Elder Care Firm, Lorna volunteered at the Butler Area Agency on Aging. Doing various tasks like helping people decide on just the right Medicare plan, handing out Farmer’s Market vouchers, and being a part of the CARIE fraud prevention program. Through networking, she was introduced to Butler Collaborative for Families. Lorna instantly wanted to get more involved with the Butler community at large. In 2019, Lorna became the first senior community member representative, through the hard work of Jan Rogers and John McCool and feels it has been a privilege to be involved with the BCF Executive Board and representing the senior community.
Lorna has been a Registered Nurse since 1976 from the Western Pennsylvania Hospital school of Nursing and married just as long to her husband and her best friend, Jeffrey, with whom she has two incredible sons. As a nurse, Lorna worked at hospitals and nursing homes until she started her business in 2014 after completing certificates from the University of Massachusetts for gerontology and social policy in gerontology. Additionally, Lorna has been a member of Christian Business Partners- Butler Chapter since 2015 and has served as their secretary.
In Lorna’s own time, she is active in her church Middlesex Presbyterian, the oldest continuous church congregation in Butler County. Sewing, cooking, baking, and crocheting are loved by her. Taking long walks in her neighborhood is her quiet time.
Lorna looks forward to serving the BCF community in this capacity.
