Add Leaves to the Memory Tree

Like the roots of a tree, the memories of our loved ones run deep and sustain us. Likewise, its branches both protect us from the elements and offer beauty in times of sadness. Both strong and vulnerable, this tree can hold our memories and symbolize new life.

The Memory Tree is located at Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital in the third-floor Visitor’s Lounge. Both the lounge and the Memory Tree are generously sponsored in memory of Kenneth Stevens, MD. The metal tree was created by Oregon artist Ken Scott.

To engrave a leaf in memory of a loved one, use the button below and enter $25 (or more) per leaf on the donation form. Choose the ArtsCare fund from the Gift Designation drop-down.

In the Comment Box, include the dates of birth and passing of the person you are remembering, and check the Honor or Memorial Gift fields.

A limited number of leaves are available.
