Willard, OH – Mercy Willard Hospital volunteers Edda Luppino and Wilma Armitage were recognized with the quarterly Mercy Volunteer Excellence Award.
“I would like to personally thank Edda and Wilma for their dedication to Mercy Willard Hospital as volunteers,” said Lynn Detterman, President and CEO of Mercy Willard Hospital. “Mercy Willard staff, physicians and our community benefit from our volunteers’ generous service.”
Edda Luppino was nominated by Laurie Kaple and Audrey Ginter for her service in the Mercy Gift Shop. Edda started sharing the gift of her time with Mercy in 1994. Edda shows an unwavering devotion to her volunteer position, making sure shifts are filled so that the gift shop is open for patients and visitors. We thank Edda for her dedication.
Wilma Armitage was nominated by Nick Keminsky and Scott Garner for her service in the Cardiac Rehab department. Nick and Scott sited Wilma’s pleasant attitude and engaging personality as a gift to those she encounters. She also helped to raise donations and encouraged walkers for Mercy’s team in the Huron County Heart Walk.
The Volunteer Service Award was launched in 2010 to recognize volunteers for their achievements and dedication in volunteerism at Mercy Willard Hospital. Any Mercy volunteer or employee can nominate a volunteer for the award. One volunteer is selected each quarter of the calendar year. An overall volunteer excellence award is awarded at the end of the year.
The nominees for the overall award include the quarterly volunteer award recipients. Past award recipients include Ruth Rice, Pat Bittikofer, Jim Stockmaster, Barb Beck, Jean Hill, Bud Schaffer, Fran Goodsite, Russ Niedermeier, Carol Hostetler, Beverly Knueppel, Floyd McQuown, Mary Phillips, Norma Laser and Diana Buskey.
