Wormser is being remembered for her service to the city as a member of its governing council from 1985 to 1989 and especially for her 1990 founding of Inland Harvest, which helps feed the area’s hungry.

Smiley Library, the Redlands Symphony Association and the Zonta Club of Redlands. Over the years Wormser was honored with several awards for her efforts.
