Minter’s service set an example for all of us

A recent addition to King’s Daughters Medical Center will not only honor a woman who gave so much to the community, it will also provide a serene place for staff and patients to pray.

The Willing Hearts Memorial Garden was officially dedicated Wednesday in honor of Sue Minter.

Minter gave much of her time and energy to the Willing Hearts Circle and KDMC — as well as to the arts.

The garden includes brick walkways and wooden benches, and on the wall nearby is a large cross, the symbol of the Willing Hearts Circle. Minter’s husband James made the cross.

“We’re proud of our hospital. This area makes it even better by offering a wonderful place for the families of our patients to gather their thoughts and offer their prayers,” said KDMC CEO Alvin Hoover.

The garden, and the cross above it, is a reminder of KDMC’s mission to provide health and wellness in a Christian environment.  It’s the last part of that mission that makes KDMC unique.

We are thankful for the contributions to this community from people like Minter. Her service is an example for us all.
