Margaret Jones

Margaret Ann Jones passed away peacefully in June 2019. The family held memorial services in July 2019 in North Carolina and Guam, respectively. In lieu of flowers, they had asked that Margaret be honored with donations made to the Guam Memorial Hospital Volunteers Association, of which she was a founding member in 1965.

Members of the association, also known as the Pink Ladies, were also in attendance. President of GMHVA, Christine Calvo, fondly remembered Margaret, her warm smile an​d compassion, and praised her for her initiative in launching the association’s Patient Care Program, which is a program open to volunteers in the community and is intended to complement and enhance the quality of care and quality of life for the Guam Memorial Hospital patients. ​

The donation honors not only Margaret and what she was most passionate about, but will support the mission of GMHVA and its founders, which is to continue to serve the island community in a significant and lasting way for years to come.
