Danville Speech and Hearing Center Celebrates 50 Years


Star-Tribune Editor


DANVILLE — When Wray Ware of Mount Hermon returned home from the hospital after having a stroke in 2010, he couldn’t read or spell simple words.

The stroke affected the part of his brain that controls long-term memory, including the ability to recognize language.

“I couldn’t even spell ‘cat,’” said the 67-year-old retired federal probation officer.

To help with his recovery, Ware turned to Danville Speech and Hearing Center and executive director Betty Marshall.
