Farewell to Dean Davidson
On behalf of the entire Church Home & Hospital Alumni, I want to express how very much we have enjoyed working with and knowing this very dynamic and exceptional nursing leader. A gift bag of lots of Maryland goodies was given to our friend “Trish” to enjoy as she departs for her home back in Australia.
Happy 100th Birthday, Nurse Shauck!
On February 20, Anita Cabello Shauck, ’42, our eldest living alumnus, celebrated her 100th birthday! The milestone included 100 gold balloon and 100 beautiful yellow daisies, her favorite flower. The well wishers included daughter Wendy Shauck Hudson, ’75. We all hope to see Anita, as we do every year at Reunion Weekend, in her gold crown in October!
Additions to New School of Nursing Building
The new Johns Hopkins School of Nursing building will soon be opening. It is exciting that there will be a bench in the Courtyard dedicated to Church Home Alumni and a quilt that will hang in the lobby that includes two squares displaying the CHH Pin and Ensign on the Hill Logos. Many thanks to Pat Kniffin Roberts, ’65 for the donation of the bench and to Barbara Zelenka Spink, ’69 for the time and talent in making the two squares for the quilt. These will certainly be items we will all want to see when the school reopens fully. As information is available, I will post on the CHH Facebook page.
The CHH Nursing Honor Guard is official and were active participants in two Funeral Ceremonies of recent alumni that passed. The uniqueness in honoring the deceased as a nurse and their lifelong dedication and service to the profession was received with deep emotion and thanks from families and clergy officiating.
