Bonnie Vazquez Memorial Scholarship Fund
Est. 2021 / Designated Fund
Bonnie Vazquez was a passionate and caring nurse who spent her career caring for others in the operating room and later in her husband’s medical office. During the last stages of her life, she received exceptional care and compassion from the nurses and staff of Altercare of Country Lawn in Navarre, Ohio.
Impressed with their family’s experience at Altercare, Bonnie’s children established a memorial fund at Stark Community Foundation to show their appreciation for Altercare and honor their mother’s nursing legacy. Scholarships in Bonnie’s memory are awarded annually from this fund to help Altercare of Country Lawn employees further their education in healthcare. Most recently, two employees received assistance to help them continue their education and obtain nursing degrees.
