Hospice pays tribute to late 'Dot' Sapp

May 18, 2014

Delaware Hospice lost a long-time supporter and friend with the passing of Dorothy “Dot” Sapp April 23.

Dot became interested in hospice care when she happened to read an article about Elizabeth Kubler-Ross at the same time that she found herself becoming the primary caregiver to her aging mother.  Thus, when Delaware Hospice offered its first volunteer training sessions as Beebe Healtchcare in Lewes, she signed up.

Dot devoted the next 23 years to serving patients and families.  With her strong leadership qualities, she sat on the board of trustees for three terms and also agreed to chair of the first Festival of Trees fundraiser in Sussex County.

On behalf of the Delaware Hospice community and the many families touched by her generosity and compassion, I’d like to recognize this amazing woman and express our appreciation for her contributions over the years.
