Gifts to the Endowment Fund provide a lasting legacy. An endowment is a financial gift, which provides a never-ending source of income to the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation. An Endowment Fund is actively invested. The investment income is annually drawn by the Foundation and given to the Hospital, while the principal amount remains untouched.
WE HONOUR THE FOLLOWING WHO HAVE LEFT LASTING LEGACIES WITH US:
Doris and Wes Rees
In November of 2006, Mr. Rees donated $250,000 on behalf of himself and his late wife, for the creation of a Physician Education Fund. Mrs. Rees was a former employee of the Trenton Memorial Hospital. Until 2009, Mr. Rees remained an active volunteer with the TMH Foundation.
Each year physicians are able to apply for a grant from this fund as the Investment Income will be made available.
Roli and Audrey Terrill
Audrey Terrill (Jan 2008) was predeceased by her husband Roland and brother Howard Carlton, but is survived by her sister Ola Groves of Vancouver. Audrey was a very special person and valued member of both the Trenton Memorial Hospital Auxiliary and our TMH Foundation Cornerstone Society. Her commitment to this hospital was outstanding, so it’s not surprising that she is leaving a gift that makes a difference in the lives that follow her.” As a dedicated member of our Auxiliary for over 23 years, Audrey devoted more than 12000 volunteer hours to helping patients and staff at the Trenton Memorial Hospital, at the gift shop, on 2C, in the craft group, at the Holly Bazaar, and much, much more.
As two community minded individuals, both members of the Lions and Lioness, Roland and Audrey believed that a strong hospital is the cornerstone of any community and this is why they decided many years ago to leave a lasting legacy to their Hospital. The investment income of their gift is to be used for medical equipment needs at Trenton Memorial Hospital.
George Edward Meyers
Edward Meyers ( March 7, 1926 to September 24, 2006) was predeceased by his parents Fred and Edna Meyers and sister Jean Meyers (St.Hilaire) and is survived by nephews Fred St. Hilaire of Madoc and Larry St. Hilaire of Trenton and nieces Darla Capel of Hammond and Bonnie Groves of Trenton.
Mr. Meyers was a private man who lived a very humble and quiet life, passing in much the same way he lived his life, quietly at QH TM with his family at his side. Very few of the many dreams or motives of his life are known. He was born and raised on a 4th generation family farm on the 3rd concession of Trenton; a direct descendant of Captain Hans Waltimeyer who founded Belleville. The family are very grateful to the staff at QH-TM for the care they gave Mr. Meyers, and most notably Dr. Ken Reynolds. In years prior to his admittance Dr. Hilton was also very kind to the family.
As a first cousin of the late Kay Stafford, Mr. Meyers admired the gift that Mrs. Stafford left to the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation in 1996; a Memorial Fund that would provide both educational support for all QH-TM staff as well as financial support for community healthcare projects for many years to come. Thus, in Mr. Meyers Last Will and Testament he established the George Edward Meyers Trust Fund that will see the principle invested and the interest income used for the purchase of any equipment of any other appropriate use as determined by the TMHF Board of Directors solely for the benefit of the operation and improvement of Quinte Healthcare Trenton Memorial.
