A Tribute to Angels Committee Chair James Rykowski and Vice Chair Lee Ann Vogt are pleased to announce the recipients of this year's Sister Mary Mechtilde Memorial Award are Dr. Joseph P. and Mrs. Diane Leberer and Dr. Joseph A. and Mrs. Patricia Ralabate.  This prestigious award is Kenmore Mercy Hospital's highest honor, established in 1980 by the Kenmore Mercy Foundation. It recognizes outstanding individuals who have demonstrated a dedication to community service, visionary leadership and the ideals of unselfish service towards others. These qualities were exemplified by Sister Mary Mechtilde O'Connor, RSM, foundress and first administrator of Kenmore Mercy Hospital.

In addition, the Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Nancy R. Dobson Treasurer and Trustee of Kenmore Mercy Foundation Board. The Lifetime Achievement Award honors past recipients of the Sister Mechtilde Award who continue to remain active and supportive of the Foundation, the hospital and the community today.
