When donations in memory of a loved one are made to St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation, a special fund, a Memorial Fund, is created in the name of that person. When the total of donations made to a Memorial Fund reaches $1,000, the Foundation offers to place a dedicated plaque with the name of that person on St. Mary’s Commemorative Wall. This place of honour is located on the second floor of our Hospital in the hallway leading to the Chapel. As well, the person’s name is included in the St. Mary’s Society Booklet.
The loss of a loved one never truly heals but through our memories we can take comfort and hold dear all that they meant to us. Gifts made in memory are a thoughtful, tangible way to pay tribute to a loved one while also helping many others.
