Loved Ones Commemorated with Personalized Ornaments on Remembrance Trees at Lutheran Hospital

Ornaments adorn holiday trees in the south lobby

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Monday, Nov. 10, 2014) – Memorial ornaments will again adorn Remembrance Trees at Lutheran Hospital this upcoming holiday season. The annual Remembrance Tree display gives the entire community a way to commemorate loved ones who are gone but not forgotten.

The public is invited to place a personalized ornament on one of the trees Saturday, Nov. 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. A special dedication will take place in the hospital’s south lobby at 12:45 p.m. The names of loved ones will be read at that time.

Special ornaments are available in memory of fallen heroes from the armed forces, fire department or police department. This year, a special children’s tree has also been added. Loved ones can select a Lego ornament in memory of a child.

Volunteers paint each ornament with a family member or friend’s name. People can opt to write a note to or about the loved one that will be placed inside their ornament.

Ornaments remain on the trees until shortly after the New Year, at which time they may be picked up at Lutheran and taken home as a memento. Ornaments are provided free of charge.

Area choirs and musicians will share songs of the season throughout the morning. Nurses from Lutheran Hospital helped plan this special activity.

Lutheran Hospital’s south lobby is located in Medical Office Building Two, 7910 W. Jefferson Blvd., adjacent to the Lutheran Cancer Center. The campus’ south parking garage offers the closest parking.

This is the sixth year for the Remembrance Tree event at Lutheran. The public may call 260.435.7704, for more information.
