CHP Home Care & Hospice has established an endowment fund with the Van Wert County Foundation in memory of its former Vice President of Finance, Fawn Burley, who passed in March.

Named the Fawn Burley CHP Hospice Patient Care Fund, the endowment will benefit hospice patients in Van Wert County through CHP’s Hospice Patient Care Fund. The fund will be used to meet the medical, physical, and emotional needs of terminally ill patients and their immediate family members.

Burley worked for 29 years in the CHP Finance Department, eventually becoming VP of Finance overseeing each of the three 501c3 nonprofit corporations comprising Community Health Professionals, Inc.

“Fawn would have been deeply honored,” said Mark Burley, Burley’s husband of 44 years. “She inspired so many people in her career at CHP. She was an inspiration to me every day watching her care so much for others, and she cared so much for CHP and the families it serves. This is a fitting honor and a pleasure to see.”

Donations to the Fawn Burley CHP Hospice Patient Care Fund may be made through the Van Wert County Foundation, 138 E. Main St., Van Wert, OH 45891.
