JoNancy Sundberg accepts the inaugural “Gifts of Kindness” honor

In front of over 100 friends and supporters of JoNancy and Arkansas Hospice, a delicious lunch was served, which was blessed with a beautiful choral arrangement from the Threshold Singers.

As attendees dined, Arkansas Hospice Foundation Executive Director Renie Rule shared the stories of “Faces of Kindness.” While holding placemats from the tables, Renie told the story behind each face featured. She said, “Your Gifts of Kindness breathe life into memories for our patients who are experiencing their last birthday, a couple’s final trip, and those families who need help with gas and other expenses. You give our families and patients memories for a lifetime, and we are so grateful.”

In addition to the “Faces of Kindness” placemats at each place setting was an Arkansas Hospice signature teal napkin, inserted with the following message regarding the event’s honoree:

Today we honor JoNancy Linn Sundberg, a faithful member of the Arkansas Hospice Hot Springs Advisory Council. JoNancy has been an advocate and supporter of Arkansas Hospice for many years, and has truly shared her conviction about our services in many ways: through sharing with friends when she knew they could benefit from hospice, from learning some of the “ins and outs” of the way hospice works so she could speak knowledgeably, to sharing financially through becoming the first Towbin Society member from the Hot Springs office. She takes her Towbin Society membership seriously and shares openly with friends about the joys of giving.

Among the many ways she has benefitted Hot Springs Village, where she lives, is her involvement with Village Bible Church in numerous roles, the Hot Springs Village Players and its Readers Theatre, starting GriefShare at her home church, being on the Advisory Board of the Good Samaritan Society of Hot Spring Village, and compiling books to minister to those who are grieving. She herself was widowed 26 years ago after living in Hot Springs Village a short time, when her husband, Bob, died in an automobile accident. Since that time she has nurtured a strong belief that she has a ministry to those who are experiencing loss.

Words can’t thank JoNancy enough for her care for the Arkansas Hospice Foundation and the Hot Springs office.
