Charity Child

Former nurse names QEH one of her children

Trish Clarkin admired her mother’s generosity throughout her lifetime and was proud when she named the Queen Elizabeth Hospital a beneficiary in her Will. Her mother was Charlottetown native Lois Brady, a graduate of the PEI School of Nursing in 1946, and a mother of four children.

“Mom gave to several charities throughout her lifetime and taught us about the importance of giving back to others,” says Clarkin. “As a nurse, she understood the impact of giving on patient care and the genuine need for up-to-date medical equipment.”

Sadly, Lois passed away in 2014 and was so inspired by her many years of caring for others, that she included the QEH Foundation as one of her children and divided her estate into five parts instead of four. By including the QEH as one of her children, she knew her estate would receive the added benefit of reducing or eliminating taxes upon her death.

Lois Clarkin Dunstan (RN) will be forever remembered and her name added to the beautiful donor wall at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital at the Patron ($25,000 – $49,999) level of giving.
