According to Images of America: Somers, from the Somers Historical Society:

"Mark Barkal, R.N., was Somers' first visiting nurse from 1950 to 1965. She worked with Dr. Ralph Thayer until his death in 1960, giving home healthcare advice and organizing well-child clinics. She was able to communicate in Lithuanian and was therefore able to establish trust with the town's immigrants. The Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) continues to aid Somers residents."
