Memorial Tree


The “Tree of Remembrance”, located just within the main entrance of the Doug and Lucy Bowers House, offers family and friends a unique opportunity to remember their loved ones. The “Tree of Remembrance” is a beautifully designed hand forged sculpture, created especially for Hospice of Southern West Virginia. The 400 leaf tree provides an opportunity for family and friends to permanently memorialize or honor their loved one in a way that provides a lasting and meaningful tribute to their life and memory. Donors have an assortment of memorial options and monetary levels from which to choose. These choices include gold, silver, or bronze leaves or if one would choose a larger commemorative tribute iron foundation stones or butterflies are available. Any option can be engraved with a loved one’s name or a special message. A contribution provides a permanent and personalized remembrance of a loved one, as well as adding beauty to the environment of Bowers Hospice House for all guests and families to enjoy.


Community Giving:

“Reflections of Life” Garden
In August of 2012 Hospice of Southern WV dedicated the “Reflections of Life” Garden with a private gathering of invited guests.
The “Reflection of Life” Garden is dedicated to the memory of Frances V. Quesenberry, co-founder of Rose and Quesenberry Funeral Homes and Larry Lynn Williams, one of its most devoted employees.  The entire area was funded by the Quesenberry family and Rose and Quesenberry Funeral Homes.
“This is a very bittersweet and emotional time for the Quesenberry family, “said Michael Quesenberry. “We are so fortunate to be able to do this memorial for two of our most beloved family members and at the same time hopefully be able to give comfort and peace to other families going through the death process.”
Michael added, “(w)e are honored Hospice of Southern WV has allowed us to use land on their new campus for this garden and reflection pool.  This is one way we feel we can give back to a community that has been so good to us.”
The Garden consists 10,000 square feet with a 20,000 gallon reflecting pool, a pergola, three bubbling water features, a stone column bearing a large bronze coin embossed with the image of Frances Quesenberry and Larry Williams, a bronze plaque depicting a tranquil seagull painting, numerous plants, and trees.
