Memorial Rock Dedicated

On Tuesday, November 15, 2016 employees were invited to celebrate the Unveiling and Dedication of a "memorial rock" in remembrance of Diane Rhoden.


Diane was hired in 2003 and served in the Accounting department as an Accounts Payable Clerk.  She passed away on July 11, 2015.  During the memorial dedication, Diane's son, Travis spoke about his mom, her smile and her dedication to her work at BCHHC even during her weakest moments while going through Chemotherapy.  The rock has a butterfly and BELIEVE engraved in the rock because Diane believed in BCHHC's mission and values to patient and families.


Co-workers, Patty Burns and Soni Blackburn shared heartfelt words and a prayer on behalf of their friend.  Diane's spirit and faith through her fight of breast cancer was strong.  She never forgot a birthday and loved celebrating others on their special day with scratch cards and poke cake or cherry mash.  The rule was that she had to be present when the cards were scratched!


Patty stated, "Diane handled her breast cancer with grace, dignity, and humor.  She never missed a day of work and planned all her treatments and appointments at the end of the day so she wouldn't miss a check run.  You couldn't get much past Diane, but with the help of her family, the department surprised her with a limo adventure on her last day of radiation treatment"


Diane is fondly remembered and missed by her BCHHC family.
