BWWMH honors late friend with scholarship

Published 4:52pm Monday, January 10, 2011

The Respiratory Therapy Department and Bryan W. Whitfield Memorial Hospital lost a long time therapist and friend. Christine Wolf Lloyd was a member of the Respiratory family for 30 years.

She dedicated her life to her patients and making their lives as well as diseases better. Christine was respected by all as a therapist, woman and mother.

She had a great sense of humor and always strived to better herself through her work and dedication to the hospital and Respiratory Department.

Christine worked hard to accomplish her goal of being the best therapist and she made lasting impressions on all her patients and co-workers lives. Christine lost her battle with her condition on Nov. 22, 2010. Our department has felt the loss of her experience as well as her smiling face.

Christine was a giver. A giver of time, love, care and hope. She leaves behind her only child, a daughter, Kristi Eran Lloyd and a husband, Greg Lloyd. Her greatest and most wanted wish was Kristi’s education and success. Kristi is no in her sophomore year at Alabama State University in Montgomery.

It is because of Christine’s memory and greatness that we as a department are establishing a scholarship fund in her name. Each year starting with 2010 we are accepting donations and applications for a scholarship to be given away each year in January. We have decided that this first year the recipient will be Christine’s daughter, Kristi. This is a small way of keeping her memory alive and her life celebrated.

We are asking for donations in her honor to start this fund.

Christine will never be replaced. Her Christian faith has been a great example to all who knew her. Chris is no longer suffering with the trails of this world. Please help us in easing a portion of the financial strain of a student going to college each year. We know that is what Chris would have wanted. She will be greatly missed and never forgotten.

Please bring donations to BWWMH respiratory Therapy Department or contact Kayla Hasty at 334-287-2604 for information and questions.
