Good Samaritan Foundation recently received a large gift of more than $700,000
donated by the estate of the late Edna Pauline Bartlow who passed away
on December 25, 2019 at the age of 83.
Mrs. Bartlow was born in Pontiac, Illinois on January 27,1936. She spent
her life as an accountant and moved to Vincennes with her husband, Robert,
after his retirement. The couple were very active with the Upper Indiana
Presbyterian Church and enjoyed helping with Church on the Street.
Edna was a patient at Good Samaritan and was very appreciative of the excellent
care and attention she received during her time in the hospital and wanted
to donate part of her estate to Good Samaritan Foundation. As per her
wishes, the Foundation has established a fund in her name for patient needs.
“With this generous gift we will be able to help so many of our patients,”
said Gary Hackney, Director of Foundation. “We are extremely grateful
that Mrs. Bartlow chose to donate part of her estate to Good Samaritan.
Clinical care departments of Good Samaritan will be able to make a funds
request to the Foundation for patients they feel may need assistance for
items such as home medical equipment, medication, transportation and other
aides to ensure medical needs are met.
