Memorial for Pathway Home employees Monday
A celebration of life service is scheduled Monday evening for the three employees of The Pathway Home veterans’ treatment center in Yountville who were slain there last week.
Executive director Christine Loeber, 48, and staff psychologists Dr. Jennifer Gonzales Shushereba, 32, a clinical psychologist, and Dr. Jennifer Gray Golick, 42, a clinical director, were found dead around 6 p.m. last Friday after a standoff that began around 10:15 a.m. in a room at the Veterans Home of California on California Drive.
Albert Wong, 36, of Sacramento, is suspected of shooting the women before taking his own life, according to the Napa County Sheriff’s Office.
Autopsies on the victims are scheduled for this week.
The Board of directors of The Pathway Home announced Wednesday it is suspending its operations at the veterans’ home. Veterans in the program will be supported by mental health and other services in cooperation with the federal Department of Veterans Affairs and local Napa County non-profit providers.
Napa Valley College officials said its counseling services for student veterans will continue. Both Golick and Shushereba also worked at Napa Valley College, school spokesman Doug Ernst said.
The Celebration of Life is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday at the Lincoln Theater in the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center on the Veterans Home campus in Yountville. The event is open to the public.
