It is rare that a person finds absolute purpose in this world. Lore was an exception and lived an extraordinary life dedicated to her gifts and passion.
With her faith as her foundation, she touched the lives of thousands of children to teach them the beauty and grace of being able to swim, and her lessons will carry on for generations to come.
For her family, she shared her appreciation of the beauty of this world and set the example of dedication and courage to pursue your dream. These lessons will live on in those who surrounded her with the simple remembered phrase, 'My Grandma Said.'
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Vandegrift Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the
Deborah Hospital Foundation
Compassion has always been at the heart of the Deborah mission. Beginning in 1922 to help treat tuberculosis patients, the center transitioned to other pulmonary and cardiology based medical conditions post the advent and widespread use of antibiotics. Today, Deborah is a leading medical center dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of all cardiac, vascular and pulmonary disease, as well as congenital and acquired heart defects. The Foundation helps support the clinical mission of the Center and to ensure the philosophy - 'there can be no price on life' - is promoted and upheld. Although Deborah now accepts most major insurance, over the last 92 years Deborah has never issued a direct bill to any patient, meaning no deductible or bill is charged to the patient for services received from Deborah Heart and Lung Center.
