Hiking in 
Memory of a Loved One

Local business leader and President of May-McConville Omni 
Insurance Brokers, Peter McConville, passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospice in June2017. His brother, Shawn, shares the family’s experience within residential care and why they chose to give to St. Joseph’s Hospice in memory of Peter: 

“When Peter’s health deteriorated to a point that we needed to transition from managing his disease to end-of-life care, we wanted to make the most of the final stages of his amazing life. The reputation of St. Joseph’s Hospice, supported by their wonderful professional staff, gave us all the confidence in the care that Peter needed and we knew the family would also be very well supported.”

“Surrounded by specialists each and every day, the professional staff and volunteers at St. Joseph’s Hospice made sure Peter was comfortable and looked after all his special needs; giving us precious time to enjoy with him - making every moment count. It was reassuring to know that Hospice was there with all their resources to ensure Peter was in the best of care – allowing us quality time to visit and provide our love and support.”  

“Being at Hospice was the greatest gift for Peter and our  family. Everyone wrapped their arms around us and  provided the most compassionate care. It is truly the most  wonderful place. The boys and I are so grateful that we were able to spend that critical time together in such a loving and caring environment.” - Madonna McConville, Peter’s Wife
