Jane Cooper Fall
We are proud to continue this special event in memory of Jane, Founder, Lights of Love.
About the Jane Cooper Fall Lights of Love Celebration
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.
We were very sad to learn of Jane’s passing on October 18, 2018. She gave so much to our local communities, and made a significant impact through her work and volunteerism. We encourage you to read Jane’s obituary online to learn more about this incredible woman and how deeply she cared for the people and communities she was surrounded by. In memory of Jane, the FMH Auxiliary Board has been committed to continuing this celebration, especially since the community and this event meant so much to Jane, and of course, Jane meant so much to all of us.
Since Frisbie Memorial Hospital was acquired by HCA Healthcare in March 2020, there was some uncertainty regarding the future of the Lights of Love Celebration. As a result, the FMH Auxiliary Board met with Cornerstone VNA, and we are pleased to share that the FMH Auxiliary Board enthusiastically agreed to transition the Lights of Love Celebration to Cornerstone VNA.
Cornerstone VNA is an independent nonprofit home health and hospice care provider that was founded in 1913. For nearly 50 years, Cornerstone VNA has been very proud to have known Jane and celebrate her many accomplishments. In 1970, Jane became president of the Farmington VNA, which is now known as Cornerstone VNA. Over the years, Jane remained very involved with the VNA and even served on the Board of Directors until 1997. During Cornerstone VNA’s 100th year, Jane was presented with the 2013 Cornerstone Award for her dedication and years of service to the VNA. She also served for more than 50 years on the FMH Auxiliary, and received numerous awards for her volunteerism and outstanding service to health care in the community.
Due to Cornerstone VNA’s close relationship with Jane and the FMH Auxiliary Board, it is the perfect way to continue this annual tradition of celebrating and remembering the special people in our lives. Cornerstone VNA is grateful to the FMH Auxiliary Board for this opportunity and to many of their Board Members who will continue volunteering to support Lights of Love.
We hope you can be a part of the 2020 Lights of Love Celebration and continue to celebrate with us for many years to come. Cornerstone VNA will update this page soon with additional event details and how you can honor or remember someone special.
