Greensburg Sisters’ Estate Helping Seniors at Redstone Highlands

$175,000 Donation will fund campus renovation Ten years after their deaths, sisters Mary Louise and Marjorie Lord of Greensburg are still contributing to their community, making it a better place for everyone. A recent $175,000 donation was made on their behalf to Redstone Presbyterian SeniorCare, a Christian non-profit provider of senior living communities throughout Southwestern Pa.

The gift will fund part of Redstone’s planned renovations to the Harbor Healthcare Facility at its Greensburg campus. Set to begin later this year, initial improvements will be made to the public spaces of the skilled nursing facility.  These renovations will help Redstone provide a more person-centered atmosphere for both short-term rehabilitation patients and long-term residents

“Thanks to the caring and compassion of our former residents, the Lord Sisters, our current residents in Greensburg will benefit from these enhanced spaces.” said John Dickson, president and CEO of Redstone. “Their legacy will continue to live on in our Redstone community. We are honored to have been a part of their lives and wholeheartedly thank them for their generosity both in life and death.”

As lifelong Greensburg residents, the sisters were both retirees of the Elliott Company in Jeanette. Mary Louise, the elder sister, moved to Redstone in February 23, 2003, and soon after; Marjorie also moved to Redstone. On April 15, 2003 Mary Louise died, and less than two weeks later, Marjorie passed away. They spent their last days at Redstone Highlands.

Redstone received the donation in December from Joe Scarpo and Michael Passalinqua of Private Wealth Advisors, who have administered the Lord sisters’ trust since their passing.
