100-year-old founder of Langley Hospice still volunteers there

A A

Dorscie Paterson is a force to be reckoned with. Not only did she found the Langley Hospice 30 years ago. Today, at the age of 100, she still volunteers there.

But she is quick to point out it takes community support to keep the place going. That is where artist Murray Phillips comes in. Last June, his wife Betty died at the hospice. His family was so impressed by and grateful for the care they received that Murray rallied 17 members of the art community and organized a benefit art show.

This year’s West Fine Art Show  will donate 25% of its proceeds to Langley Hospice in Betty’s honor.
