Nearly all 100 residents of Allen Terrace joined with guests
from the City – including Northville Mayor Ken Roth, City Council Member
Marilyn Price and City Manager Pat Sullivan – on Oct. 30 to say goodbye
to Sherry Necelis, who is retiring as Housing director. Housing
Commission President Roger Schultz, Vice President Al Deneau and members
Nancy Catallo, Lou Ronayne and Jerry Mittman also were at the party.
Guests enjoyed cake and ice cream and hot beverages as they chatted
with one another and with the guest of honor. Many said that Sherry was
very helpful to residents and always had a smile on her face. She will
continue to serve in the role part-time in November, until a new
director comes on board.
Sherry has been the director of Allen
Terrace for the past 10 years and has made her mark as a friendly,
compassionate administrator who wanted to make residents’ lives better.
She listened to their concerns and helped them resolve issues, whether
it was a personal matter or required policies be set through the
Resident Council or Housing Commission.
Sherry will likely spend
the winter in Florida – who can blame her? – and is looking forward to
relaxing with family and friends. She promised residents that she will
be back for visits.
