Honor a special person in your life by contributing to the Frances McGillivray Tribute Campaign.

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 on April 5th.

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.  

The 2018 Campaign concluded with a Ceremonial Reception on April 5th. Learn more
