Sister Olivia Prendergast was a leader in the hospice movement, helping to organize BSA Hospice, the first in-patient hospice west of the Mississippi River. To support her leadership, a group of compassionate community leaders created an organization dedicated to raising money to pay for the “extras” of hospice patients, for educating the community about hospice care and for supporting staff. That organization became “Olivia’s Angels” in 1990.
Olivia’s Angels helps to fulfill the needs, dreams and wishes of many patients. Sometimes these are relatively small, such as denture repairs, eyeglasses or a haircut at home. And sometimes they are much larger, such as purchasing an airline ticket so that a loved one can spend time with a patient.
Olivia’s Angels enriches the lives of hospice patients primarily through proceeds from membership dues, donations and the annual Hospice Holiday Tree. Your level of involvement in the organization can be as simple as paying annual dues or as involved as becoming an active hospice volunteer. Contact us for more information.

Donations may be made to Olivia’s Angels in honor or memory of friends and loved ones. Memorial contributions honor the memory of loved ones, who can be a direct relative, a friend or a family member of a friend or co-worker. Families will often request donations to Olivia’s Angels in lieu of flowers.
Honorariums are made in honor of someone living to show love or respect. These gifts can observe a birthday, anniversary, holiday or a special recognition. The memories of your loved ones or friends are honored as hospice reaches out to others in their time of need.
