The Bethany Hospice/Linda L. Peterson Endowed Scholarship

The Bethany family suffered a terrible loss in November when Linda L. Peterson, pioneer of the Bethany Hospice Volunteer Program and our charter Volunteer Coordinator, passed away.  She left a remarkable legacy of service worthy of celebration.

Linda Peterson embodied the spirit of altruism. Intuitively alert to suffering, she committed her life to alleviating the pain and anxiety of others. She was dedicated to causes benefiting our most vulnerable populations including troubled schools, children with special needs, and the Humane Society.  Linda's compassion was unrivaled.

After working for years in the field of elder-care, Linda found her most rewarding position as Volunteer Coordinator here at Bethany Hospice. She worked tirelessly with our volunteers, organized programs such as music therapy, and instituted pet therapy visits.  She was passionate about her work.  Only months before her death at the age of 69, Linda was forced to retire from her position at Bethany after illness made it impossible to carry on.  Despite Linda's fighting spirit, she lost her battle with her illness and left this world too soon.

Linda Peterson was an amazing woman, and Bethany Hospice would like to keep her memory alive. Therefore, we have established The Bethany Hospice/Linda L. Peterson Endowed Scholarship at the Duquesne University School of Nursing.  This scholarship will educate future healthcare workers, enabling them to continue her mission of volunteerism and selfless service to others.

Those wishing to join us in honoring Linda can contribute to the scholarship fund by sending donations to: Bethany Hospice, 6 Parkway Center, Suite 100, 875 Greentree Road, Pittsburgh, PA, 15220, Attn: Memory Fund. Be sure to include Linda L. Peterson Scholarship in the memo of your check or money order.  You may also contact us at 412-921-2209 or with any questions or for more information.

With her gentle soul, open heart, and enduring smile, Linda Peterson was easy to love. We will never forget her.
