who have better
things to do with
to people entering her immedi-
ate physical space," Ms. Cook
said. "Despite her limited com-
munication skills and some very
unconventional methods of corn-
municating, she endeared her-
self to many members of the
staff. She spoke a combination of
English and Yiddish, but rarely
finished a sentence."
It was difficult assisting a
woman who often communicat-
ed by screeching and could no
longer be driven to JVS because
her behavior included lunging
forward and scaring the volun-
JVS staffers, including the ac-
counting depal Liiient, who oth-
erwise would have no direct
contact with clients, started as-
sisting her outside of work.
They began taking turns dri-
ving Ms. Zolotow to the program,
and her case manager moved
her into a local nursing home.
Yearly parties were planned by
the accounting department
for Ms. Zolotow, who often spent
holidays with staff members.
They also pooled money to pay for
some of her transportation costs.
When Ms. Zolotow was diag-
nosed with lung cancer, her doc-

The phone call went to one of Ms.
Zolotow's adopted family mem-

This past New Year's Eve,
when Ms. Zolotow was dying, a
staff member went to the hos-
pital to be with her.
Ms. Cook knows little about
Ms. Zolotow's background but is
anxious to put the pieces to-
The details she has learned so

She heard a bus accident
claimed the life of one of Ms. Zolo-
tow's parents and left a sibling
institutionalized with brain dam-
age. A relative took care of Ms.
Zolotow for as long as he could,
then contacted someone in the
Jewish community. From there,
she lived with an older woman
in Oak Park for a decade. When
that woman died, Ms. Zolotow
was placed in a home by this
woman's son, who was also Ms.
Zolotow's first legal guardian.
"I don't know why it matters
to me, but it does," Ms. Cook said.
"I have this need to know if she
ever lived a normal life. Did she
live in a house with her family?
Did she laugh? Does she still
have a sister who is alive? This
is a mystery I'd like to be able to
