ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. When Albuquerque resident Cindy Madsen Frame sent her last child to college, she experienced a noticeable void in her life. Wife of a podiatrist and mother of five, she decided to engage in volunteer work that was genuinely constructive and helpful to others.
For a couple of years, a Roman Catholic friend, Carmel Rippberger, had wanted to nominate her to the Board of Directors of Catholic Charities and she finally agreed. However, as an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she was concerned about whether or not she would be accepted.
