Scholarship honours loving care at County nursing home

The award was presented to Keora Kimball by Ann Trick, daughter of Jean Lynch, her husband David, sister Joy Vervoort and PEC Mayor Robert Quaiff.

The family of the late Jean Lynch presented a scholarship Wedneday in honour of the care she received at the County’s nursing home.

Lynch was a resident at H.J. McFarland Memorial Home for nine years and the family established the The Jean Lynch Scholarship Award after her death in 2016 in honour of the care she received as a resident. It is open to employees of the home, their children or grandchildren who are pursing post-secondary education.

This year, the $1,000 scholarship was presented to Keora Kimball, currently working at the home as a student personal support worker and pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) at St. Lawrence College, in partnership with Laurentian University.

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to work at H.J. McFarland Memorial Home this summer. It has been a great experience for me,” said Kimball. “It is an honour to receive the Jean Lynch Scholarship and it will be used to help cover my school expenses for the upcoming year such as tuition, textbooks, residence fees and parking.”

Kim Mauro, Administrator, H.J. McFarland Memorial Home, said Kimball is a worthy recipient for the scholarship because of the potential she has shown as a long-term care professional.

“Keora has paid keen and personalized attention to the needs of our residents, which is something that Jean Lynch enjoyed about living here,” said Mauro. “She is committed to advancing her knowledge and expertise in the field of nursing, which complements her kind and caring personality. It is easy to see where Keora comes by these traits, as her mother is a dedicated and valued PSW who has worked at H.J. McFarland Memorial Home for many years.”

The award was presented by Ann Trick, daughter of Jean Lynch. Ann, along with her husband David, and her sister Joy Vervoort, said they established the scholarship as a way to give back to the staff of H.J. McFarland for the loving care that was provided to Jean for many years.
