Employee of the Month

Deloris Mesias-Foster


Deloris Mesias-Foster, Nursing Assistant II for the Missouri Veterans Home – Warrensburg, was selected as the April 2014 Missouri Veterans Commission Employee of the Month.

Deloris was selected for the sincere and compassionate manner in which she served a resident during the final hours of his wife's life.

Upon notification that his wife's life would soon end, Deloris drove the resident from the Veterans Home to the hospital so that he could be with his wife and their family during her final hours. Because of Deloris’ selfless service, the resident was able to present his wife with the final gift of a blanket he had purchased from the Veterans Home Christmas store.

The family specifically noted in their nomination of Deloris for Employee of the Month her concern for the resident by the quiet and loving manner in which she continued to check on his well-being during this difficult time.

Deloris’ kindness and dedication for those we serve reflects well on the Commission as a whole. She is a true role model for all Commission staff.

Deloris will be honored April 23, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. at the Missouri Veterans Home – Warrensburg in Warrensburg, Missouri.

Congratulations Deloris!
