Published 9:41am Friday, February 15, 2013

Mary Ellen Krydynski recently became a member of the Second Wind Hall of Fame, having been nominated by Thermal Belt Habitat for Humanity.  Second Wind provides recognition for retirees 60 years and over for outstanding volunteer work in area organizations that exemplify the concept that retirement need not be the end of a productive life of service to others and their community, but a “second wind” of opportunity.

Krydynski and her husband Vince, have lived in the area since 1993. They moved here from Spartanburg, S.C. and resided previously in the Chicago area. Krydynski was a nurse practitioner and served in many capacities at DEHEC in South Carolina, Mary Black Hospital and more recently as a nurse practitioner with Dr. Viar in Columbus until she retired in 2005.

In 2000, Krydynski was selected as Nurse Practitioner of the year in North Carolina.
