Richard Tierney

We at Faith Hospice are saddened by the news of the passing of our former board member and long-time friend, Dick Tierney. As a board member for 9 years and board chair for 5 years, Dick was instrumental in the growth of Faith Hospice and the creation of Trillium Woods, the area’s first in-patient hospice facility. His kind and gentle spirit, giving nature, and business savvy made him an invaluable mentor to many of us at Faith Hospice. While we will miss his wisdom and generosity greatly, we are rejoicing in the knowledge that he is now living peacefully with our Lord.

Help the Helpers

In an effort to be as prepared as possible to continue to protect our high-risk population of seniors and staff, we are looking for donations of handmade masks and materials for making handmade masks. See how you can help!
