Hospital Auxiliary Dedicates Bench to Friend, Colleague

New Britain [April 01 2009] - The Hospital of Central Connecticut’s New Britain General campus Auxiliary recently dedicated a bench at the hospital to fellow member and former gift shop manager Patricia Hoerle, who passed away last year.

Hoerle’s daughters, Brenda and Cheryl Blogoslawski, were joined at the dedication by hospital volunteers, co-workers, longtime friends and Auxiliary members. The ceremony was held March 24, the first anniversary of Hoerle’s passing, across from the gift shop she managed for over 17 years.

The red enamel bench was purchased with memorial donations from Hoerle’s many friends and funds from the Auxiliary board of directors.

“Pat was an elegant , quiet lady who ran the gift shop with great calm and efficiency,” said Kathleen Yuskis, Auxiliary board member and gift shop treasurer. “Pat was determined to remain in the background, but she constantly promoted the work of the shop’s many volunteers. I hope when people stop to rest on the lovely bench dedicated in her honor they’ll think of Pat and enjoy their surroundings, just as she would.”
