Why Rosemary Woodward put Trinity College in her will

Why Rosemary Woodward put Trinity College in her will
I come from the little town of Dale, Wisconsin. Dad had a leather goods store. People sometimes paid him in eggs. It was the Depression and Dad did whatever he could to help. We only bought things when we needed them. And we did without until we could afford them.

I always wanted to be a nurse. It started when I was 10 years old, when I had my appendix out. The nurses were so good to me!

I was only 17 when I graduated high school and wanted to start nursing school right away. Lutheran School for Nurses accepted me even though I was so young. I loved it! Lutheran had high standards and educated us well.

I never had my own children, but I loved caring for many children at the schools I worked in. I also worked in the hospital pediatric unit. These students who will benefit from the scholarship fund? I could have cared for them when they were in grade school!

I've been so blessed. I had a wonderful husband. I've traveled the world. I have wonderful friends.

I want to give back. I know there are a lot of people out there who need help. Remember, you can't help everyone, but you can help some.

If you would like to help Trinity's nursing students or leave a gift for a different Trinity initiative, you can easily add Trinity to your will. Or, simply contact Marika Jones at 309-764-7021 or marika.jones@unitypoint.org.
