A $742 memorial gift turns into $53,400 for Hilty Home, Pandora

When Fran Reese approached Executive Director, Joy Reichenbach, earlier this year about naming Hilty Home, Pandora, as the recipient of memorial gifts in honor of her late husband, Reichenbach was pleased.  

Fran’s husband, Richard Reese, had lived at Hilty Home since June, 2010, and died Jan. 25, 2013. Fran wondered if the memorial gifts could be used to purchase a ceiling lift. A ceiling lift would have been beneficial to Richard and allowed him to stay in the Special Needs Unit where he had become comfortable and familiar.
