The family lived in St. Louis, but eventually, parents retired in Farmington and considered that their home. The donor’s father lived at Farmington Presbyterian Manor and passed away in June 2000.

In the fall of 2022, Farmington Presbyterian Manor learned of the donor’s long-time connection to Farmington Presbyterian Manor and her plans to leave a legacy. She left behind no children, spouse, or sibling. According to a spokesperson for the family, “She always said she wanted to make an impact on the world and left her estate to various charities that would be able to complete her wishes.”

Farmington Presbyterian Manor’s gift is designated to the Good Samaritan Fund, which provides funding to assist residents who outlive their financial resources through no fault of their own.

“We are beyond blessed by her generosity. This gift is going to help more than 30 residents who benefit from the Good Samaritan Program right now,” said Jane Hull, executive director. “It is inspiring to know that all these years later, she thought of Farmington Presbyterian Manor’s mission enough to recognize us in her estate plans. I wish we would have known so we could have kept in touch over the years.”
