TRUMBULL — When Michele Jakab began her job as Trumbull’s director of human services, it was immediately clear that help was needed at the Trumbull Senior Center. She put out a memo looking for volunteers to lend a hand, and Gail Poklemba immediately answered the call.
“She worked at the senior center as a receptionist prior to me being there,” Jakab said. “She knew the center very well and she knew all of its members. And they all knew her. She was honest, feisty and funny and at the end of the day she could always cheer you up.”
