  14. Socorro started her ATSDR career as a Senior Environmental Employment (SEE) Program enrollee in July of 2008, through an Interagency agreement with the EPA. As many former SEE enrollees, she was eventually hired as an FTE.

    Socorro was a lovely person, interested in and involved in diversity and inclusion and, as Kerry Caudwell shared, both “very strong and very kind in equal measure.” My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. I have no doubt she will be missed. I will miss her candor and her sense of humor.

  15. Socorro and I started at ATSDR around the same time and rapidly became friends. She was always supportive and, as so many have said., she always made me laugh. I will miss her so much. To her family, I send my prayers and condolences. Please know how much Socorro was loved.

  16. So sorry for the loss of such a sweet person – way too soon. Condolences to family. Socorro will be missed by all who knew her.

  17. Tracy, my heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family for the loss of your mom. I know what it feels like to lose your mom. There is no other pain that compares. I miss my mom every day but I know that she is in a much better place as I know your mom is. And because of our Heavenly Saviour, we will be able to be with them again in Heaven when our time comes . . . for eternity! How great is that! Just know that my thoughts and prayers are with you, pretty lady! And if you ever need anything, me and Erika are always here for you. Hug those little girls for me!

  18. I am sorry to heard about Socorro. I enjoyed my conversation with her about family and life. Death is something that is hard to deal with but the Bible gives us comfort in the resurrection hope. The word resurrection means “raising up; standing up.” with reference to the resurrection of the dead. At John 5:28,29 tells us that all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, May God comfort you and your family. Socorro will be missed.
