Annette gives as a way to sing the praises of caring, compassionate hospice care in her community
Originally from Australia, Annette Weber is a world traveler who settled in Greenville 30 years ago with a passion for giving. She volunteers her time, money and talent at Open Arms Hospice.
“I sing in the St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church Choir with Dr. Patrick Carey’s wife, Maureen,” she said. “They both invited me to volunteer in 2013, and I’ve been singing to hospice patients ever since. I carry my hymnal and take requests for hymns and Christmas carols.”
“Giving back to the community is special. People need comfort, and it takes time and money for organizations like this to provide it.”
Open Arms Hospice provides end-stage care and support as well as in-home care and bereavement services. For Annette, it’s a chance to continue her legacy of caring. As both a cancer survivor and caregiver to her mother who battled multiple sclerosis, she appreciates the importance of volunteering.
