As an organization that provides grants to support local women and children, this amazing group is changing the world.

The President

Mary Isaac

Isaac is a graduate of Kent State University and Ashland University, and community is at the core of everything she does. By day, she works as a supervisor at Medical Mutual of Ohio. On her off time, she’s a superstar in the community. Not only is she the president of the Medina County Women’s Endowment Fund, she also has prepared and delivered meals to Medina County seniors, works with Medical Mutual’s S.H.A.R.E. program, and assists with events such as Hospice of Medina County’s “Light Up a Life” Giving Tree program.

The Vice President

Sue Simmons

For nearly two decades, Simmons has honored the community fund’s mission of serving women and children by facilitating school-based prevention programs. Though she is widely known as a Catholic Charities Community Services Prevention Coordinator, she’s also an avid volunteer. Outside of the Women’s Endowment Fund, Simmons often works with Birthcare of Medina County and 100+ Women Who Care Medina to improve upon the local community. The former provides emergency assistance and support to expecting mothers and families in need, and the latter is a philanthropic women’s group.

The Secretary

Comes is also a member of the Medina County Chamber of Commerce and a presenter for the Medina County Board of Realtors, where she applies knowledge gained through her career as a licensed Realtor with Russell Real Estate Services,
