Board of Directors

Beda Herbison, LICSW, Secretary and Immediate Past President.

Beda has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Textiles and a Master in Social Work from the University of Washington.   Beda’s career as a medical social worker was primarily at the Veteran’s Administration, but she did multiple assessments in group homes that provided care for DD clients in her role.  Beda joined the board in about 1999 as the sister, guardian and advocate of Miss Florence Sharp, a former resident of the Greenwood Home.

“I treasure the Greenwood Home because of the lively activities they do with the residents, the respect that is always given to the residents and the love and caring that exudes from everyone affiliated with the home.  My goal for Greenwood Home is that it continues the legacy for which it was established in the beginning.  It’s all about the residents: their lives, goals, loves, fears, aspirations, growth and when it comes to each of us, death.”

Beda has been a resident of Washington State since 1946.  She lives in North Seattle, is married, and has two sons and three grandchildren.
