Founded through Anna Beers’ estate to support Frederick Health Hospice.
Mrs. Beers was born in Frederick in 1918 into a deep-rooted Frederick family, and lived on Elm Street until she married Peter W. Beers in 1942. With her family, they traveled and lived extensively overseas for many years until she and her husband returned to Frederick in their retirement. As Mr. Beers wished to remain at home after a diagnosis of terminal cancer, the family sought home care through Frederick Health Hospice for which Mrs. Beers was “very thankful for their presence and ongoing support,” said their daughter, Margaret Beers Evans. Mr. Beers passed away in 1988.
