The purpose of this fund is to benefit Marion-Grant County Senior Center.
When Helen P. Poindexter DeVoe’s husband, Paul Volney DeVoe, died Dec. 17, 1993, Helen DeVoe set up this fund in his honor. This fund granted the Marion General Hospital, where Paul DeVoe had served on the board of directors, Lifeline Medical Alert necklaces or wristbands for all its residents.
However, the program was recently discontinued due to the better technology available in preference over the Lifeline equipment. Upon the discontinuance, Mrs. DeVoe chose to align the fund purpose with a similar need in our community, the Senior Center.
