Memorial Hospital Hospice Quilt Raffle Winners
If your name is Pat, it was your lucky day…or it was for these two “Pats”. Pat McGovern,
left was the winner of the Memorial Hospital Hospice Quilt raffle drawing, held at the
Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Holiday Bazaar. And Pat Rushin, right, was the lucky winner
of the quilt rack. Both Pats hold Memorial Hospital Hospice near and dear to their hearts.
Pat Rushin, is a retired nurse from Memorial Hospital and in essence wrote all the policies and
procedures for Memorial’s Hospice program back in 1994. She was one of the instrumental
pioneers of the current hospice program. Pat McGovern, is a long standing Memorial Hospital
Hospice Volunteer. She always wanted to “give back” to hospice for the help they gave her
when her husband was terminally ill and she sure has. Trudy Ventello, hospice volunteer
and bereavement coordinator for Memorial Hospital Hospice says, "We are thankful for both
of these ladies and their role in the lives of our strong, vibrant, caring organization."
The total earned for the quilt raffle was $793.00. The quilt rack was hand-crafted and
donated by Mr. Gary A. Baker, Memorial Hospital’s CEO. Trudy says, "Many thanks to the
community for their support throughout the year for hospice activities."
