Our Donors and Their Tributes

Donor Recognition

Donor Specified Tribute



Stan & Sue Simmons, in memory of Nancy Duree I have been honored to share a friendship with Nancy Duree for many years now. It’s a relationship that transcends death. We met as young college students. Travel, family members, interests, and gardening all played unifying parts in our lives. Nancy’s respect for nature and her belief in the helpful affects that its beauty, intricacies, and ability to bring comfort were evident in her life. When she became ill in her early fifties, she drew upon these life-long connections.  She talked about using gardening as a means of aid for the elderly, unwell, and those who care for them. Those conversations have been a part of my gardening hours and years since her passing. When I was honored by the request to redesign this healing garden, I knew that this was our project. Her love for gardens, and knowledge of their impact upon our bodies and spirits have been woven into the design and hopes for this garden.
