HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – The room was filled with excitement in the Hamp Williams Building, as JoNancy Sundberg was honored with the Arkansas Hospice Foundation’s inaugural Gifts of Kindness Award on Thursday, May 16th.

More than 100 friends and Arkansas Hospice supporters joined JoNancy for a delicious lunch that was accompanied by 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 picturing Gifts of Kindness recipients, 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.”

JoNancy expressed her sincere appreciation to those who came to the event in support of Arkansas Hospice, but also to join in celebrating her “long journey,” as the event was held on her 80th birthday.

The first member of the Arkansas Hospice Towbin Society from the Hot Springs area, JoNancy Sundberg has been a faithful member of the Arkansas Hospice Hot Springs Advisory Council, and continues to be a strong advocate for Arkansas Hospice.

Among the many ways she has benefitted the Tri Lakes area in addition to Arkansas Hospice 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 Springs Village, and compiling books to minister to those who are grieving. Sundberg was widowed 26 years ago 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.

JoNancy Sundberg address attendees as she is honored with the Gifts of Kindness Award.
