Stories & Tributes

My husband, Steve, battled pancreatic cancer for almost two years, bravely and confidently, until the cancer took control. When he arrived at Quiet Oaks one Thursday night in June, he had taken a turn for the worse. From the time we arrived at Quiet Oaks, until his passing 5 days later, he was treated with care and respect. My children and I spent the days and nights there, to be with him, and we too were treated very well. Thank you so much for the amazing care he received during his last days, and for all the kindness shown to our family by the entire staff at Quiet Oaks.

Oak Leaf Fellowship                                                         

Quiet Oaks nursing staff recognized a need to support the grieving by surrounding them with others who are walking the same path.  It can be easier to grieve with someone who understands the journey you are on because they too are grieving. Oak Leaf Fellowship has the desire to provide loved ones a safe place to come and receive emotional support, to ensure it is a place that grief is shared openly without the feeling of burdening others.    


Meetings will be lead by Quiet Oaks Chaplain, Steve Kampa, who will be joined by invited guest speakers. Those attending each meeting are welcome to join us for a light lunch.  

The Oak Leaf Fellowship group is scheduled to meet on the following dates in 2017:

Feb. 12 at 1 p.m.

Speaker - Chaplain Nicole Reuter - Centra Care Hospice

Topic - The Open, Broken Heart




No rule book. No time frame. No judgement. Grief is as individual as a fingerprint. Do what is right for your soul. - lfw
