BRATTLEBORO—Brattleboro Area Hospice recently announced the establishment of the “Remembering Marion Fund.”

Made possible through the generosity of Warren “Pinky” Green of Brattle Street in Brattleboro, this fund is established in loving memory of his wife of 67 years, Marion Green, who died Dec. 13, 2016.

Warren’s wishes for the fund is that others will have the same love and care are end of life that Marion had. He hopes people will take steps to plan for the end of their lives more deliberately, acknowledging how they want to proceed when the time comes and taking advantage of the services and support that are made possible through Brattleboro Area Hospice when it suits them.

The fund has been established to support the work of “Taking Steps Brattleboro,” Brattleboro Area Hospice’s Advance Care Planning initiative and to increase the region’s knowledge and understanding of the services available through Brattleboro Area Hospice.

Brattleboro Area Hospice provides trained volunteers and staff to work with clients and their families to address the physical and emotional needs associated with death and grief.

In addition, Brattleboro Area Hospice offers Advance Care Planning and community education to help people better understand end of life and plan for it. It is an independent, community-based, nonprofit, volunteer organization that is locally funded and provides all services free of charge.
