Tribute fund to provide help to Concord Hospital workers in crisis, hardship
CONCORD - The family of Jillian Marie Burris has established a memorial tribute fund in her name to benefit Concord Hospital's "Employee Helping Hands" campaign, a resource that provides assistance to hospital co-workers during times of personal hardship.
A lifelong resident of Concord, Burris worked as a licensed nursing assistant on Concord Hospital's Progressive Care Unit until her death in October.
Her legacy of caring for others continued with her gift of organ donation.
Burris' love of butterflies is reflected by the butterfly-friendly shrubs and flowers that can be found on the hospital campus.
Those wishing to honor Burris may send checks payable to "Concord Hospital Trust," 250 Pleasant St., Concord, 03301.
For proper designation, include the notation, "Jillian Burris."
