 “Our experience at St. Mary’s was great. My son was very happy with his care, which is saying a lot considering he’s an RRT. He was thankful for the care he received.”

A Transformational Gift

A recent gift of $300,000 makes one local couple — who were married for 68 years — the most generous donors in the history of the St. Joseph Health, St. Mary.

“George and I love doing this more than anything else in the world,” said Mildred Lagomarsini. “Our goal was to be able to donate a total amount of $1.5 million, and we now have accomplished that.”

Mildred and George began their relationship with the St. Mary Foundation through the direct mail program in 1994. “Having to work through our own healthcare issues made us realize how important quality healthcare is,” Mildred said. “We loved the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph, so we just knew we wanted to help.”

Another pair of grateful guests recently made a generous contribution in memory of their son.

“We wanted to leave a Legacy in memory of our son Timothy and say thank you to St. Mary, who blessed us with the gift of dignity during Tim’s final days,” said J. Dean and Sheri Hane, two former, local teachers.  Faith Norton, member of the palliative care team who journeyed with the family reflected on Tim’s life: “He was a beautiful son, who knew he was going home to the Angels and was at peace.”

The Hane’s gift, which will be used to enhance nursing care and education, is a tribute to their son and a lasting hope to all those who come to St. Mary for healing and compassion.
