Lois's Stories

The Pool

Shared by Charlie Bell on November 11, 2011

During the day of Keith`s wedding, a group of us hung out at the pool. As everyone knows, Mom Teegardin lived in Florida and had an amazing tan. I, on the other hand, could not be more white and do not tan, only burn. As we hung around the pool and shared stories, we lost track of time and the location of the sun. At one point, she told me I need to move to the shadow side of the pool. Too late! Could not wear shoes to Keith`s reception but didn`t really care because I would not have traded that afternoon for anything. Just a great lady !!

As most of you know, Hospice of Southwest Florida provides care for the terminally ill and their caregivers.

On April 11, about 200 Hospice volunteers were honored with a luncheon and awards ceremony in the Englewood United Methodist Church fellowship hall.

Marge Maisto, chief executive officer of the organization, was the keynote speaker. She spoke with eloquence and warmth about the contributions made by the volunteers, from cooking meals to sitting vigil at the beside of a dying patient.

"It is in the everyday moments that volunteers do their best work," she said.

Among those fine volunteers are Lois Teegardin...

Organization: Hospice of Southwest Florida

How She Makes a Difference: Teegardin gets up at 6:30 a.m. every Sunday and Tuesday and heads over to the Hospice House in the Plantation Golf and Country Club in Venice where she prepares breakfast for up to six residents. She also records their menus, spends a bit of time visiting with them and making sure they are satisfied with their meals.

She occasionally visits Hospice patients in Englewood Community Hospital and, according to volunteer coordinator Debra Burton, can be counted on to do just about anything else that is asked of her.

She Makes a Difference

NOTE: She did this for 20 Years
