A remembrance quilt honoring Mayo Clinic Health System patients who were cared for in 2015 by Home Health &Hospice will be on display over the next year in northwest Wisconsin.
Since 1993, the names of deceased loved ones have been stitched onto a hospice remembrance quilt. Each year, a new quilt is made that contains the names of people who chosen to live the remainder of their days with the support of hospice.
The quilt, titled “On the Wings of a Dove,” represents 520 patients and families touched by hospice services. The quilt was created by Sandra Peterson, Home Health &Hospice. Embroidery was added by Carol Ellsworth, and the quilting was completed by Jan Zutter, both of Chippewa Falls.
