Joe & Theresa Brown's Story

Joe and Theresa BrownWhen asked to be on the Archbold Foundation board in 2004, Theresa Brown pondered a bit and then thought, “Everybody in this community has an obligation to do something for our wonderful hospital as it fills such a need for the whole area – I have to say yes.”

“We like to think of Archbold especially for memorial gifts, a tradition started in 1952 when my great-grandmother died - my mother gave a room in the original hospital in her memory, and we children were so proud to see the plaque and know our family had done something for the hospital,” says Theresa. “I loved being a candy striper at Archbold in high school, and Joe’s mother, a graduate nurse, enjoyed her Gray Lady volunteer work there in the 1970s.”

“We are proud of the grand reputation and the proud history of our hospital,” says Joe. “A hospital such as Archbold is important in bringing other people and organizations of quality to town. We all must think of Archbold in our giving plans.”
