Lights of Love - December 1, 2021

Cornerstone VNA is pleased to announce the 35th Annual Jane Cooper Fall Lights of Love Celebration – carrying on the wonderful event traditionally hosted by Frisbie Memorial Hospital (FMH) Auxiliary. Due to COVID-19, this special event will take place virtually on December 1, 2021 and can be viewed on this page starting at 4:30 pm. The event video will be available for viewing throughout the month of December.

Jane Cooper Fall created this event in 1986 as a way to pay tribute to the people who have had a special impact on our lives. Lights of Love has continued to be an important community event due to the work of Jane and The Frisbie Memorial Hospital (FMH) Auxiliary Board, since 2020 with Cornerstone VNA.

With each $5 donation, your loved one’s name will be added to a holiday light at Cornerstone VNA. Hundreds of lights will be strung throughout the beautiful grounds of Cornerstone VNA. Each light shining warmly upon each tribute name throughout the holiday season.


Here's a look back to our 2020 Virtual Lights of Love Event!

This Year We Pay Special Tribute To:

Jean Edgerly Saladino

Jean was a long time teacher in Rochester and very active in the community. Her dedication to community service also showed when she became the president of the Frisbie Memorial Hospital Auxiliary in the 1980s.

Jane Cooper Fall

Jane’s leadership significantly impacted the future growth of the VNAs in our region. For 27 years her vision inspired the staff providing compassionate, expert care and ultimately touching the lives of thousands.

Norma Snow

In 1913, as president of the Rochester Women’s Club, Norma Snow founded a Visiting Nurse Association (now known as Cornerstone VNA) with support from the Ladies Aide of the First Church Congregational. More than 100 years later, Norma’s passion for helping others continues to inspire us.
