Gifts Anyone Can Make


Louise Frederick


Louise Frederick Gift

When Louise Frederick passed away in April 2019, a variety of Gage County organizations were named in her estate. Louise grew up in Garfield County, NE, and received a bachelor and master's degree from the University of Nebraska. She was a member of the Unitarian Church, Beatrice Area Retired Personnel, Federated Women's Club and the Beatrice Art Guild. Louise was a very talented artist and displayed paintings in several Beatrice facilities and sold paintings at art shows. She volunteered her time at the Beatrice Humane Society as well as the Beatrice Public Library.


Louise, who taught in the Gage County District for 29 years, was able to leave a legacy of giving after she passed, naming the Beatrice Community Hospital Hospice Department as one of the beneficiaries in her will. Her gift allowed a much needed purchase of a vehicle to allow Hospice nurses and staff to safely and reliably visit patients in home. Thanks to her hard work and dedication to the community, Louise has left a long lasting mark on the place she called home.
