How It Works

When you make a gift in honor or memory of a loved one, their name will be featured on the Frances McGillivray Tribute wall plaque.

You will receive a card of acknowledgment for your tax deductible gift. A personalized card will also be sent to the family member(s) to notify them that a gift was made in memory of their loved one or in his/her honor. The amount of your gift will not be disclosed.

Individuals and sponsors who make a gift at one of the giving levels below, will be invited to attend a dedication ceremony at the Hospital.

At the ceremony a wall plaque will be dedicated and a special program will be conducted to honor loved ones being commemorated.

Who is Frances McGillivray?

Frances "Nonnie" McGillivray (September 3, 1935 - June 21, 2011)

Frances McGillivray, known amongst her immediate family and community as “Nonnie,” was born at South County Hospital in 1935 as the youngest of nine children from Italian immigrant parents. Nonnie established a wonderful life in the South County community marrying Robert McGillivray and raising her three sons, Robert Jr., Hugh “Mac,” and John.  Nonnie spent most of her time volunteering, cooking and praying always for others.  She was active in her church, St. Mary’s of the Sea.  She was a beloved volunteer at South County Hospital.  She was a source of strength, comfort and unconditional love to her sons and grandchildren.  Through her faith, she taught her grandchildren what it meant to have a belief and supported them in their pursuit in following their dreams.

The McGillivray family wishes to thank the South County Hospital community for this honor and recognition in the celebration of her life.
