Jane C. LeWarne Fund

Jane LeWarne’s nursing career started with the Red Cross in Dryden in 1938 and took her to many communities across Northern Ontario. She loved the north and became a keen observer of birds and plant life, a pastime which gave her much pleasure through her years. In 1977, upon retirement from her supervisory position at the Runnymede Hospital, a long-term care facility in Toronto, Miss LeWarne moved to Hamilton to live with her sister Elizabeth, who established this memorial fund to perpetuate her sister’s tradition of support for the needs of young people.
