The Ann Lemaire Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Ann Lemaire Memorial Scholarship

The Ann Lemaire Memorial Scholarship has been established to honor the extraordinary work of Ann, her passion for nursing, and her service with the Bronson Battle Creek Volunteers.  The Ann Lemaire Memorial Scholarship provides an annual scholarship to a student graduating from a high school in the Calhoun County Intermediate School District who is pursuing post-secondary education in a healthcare field.

The Ann Lemaire Memorial Scholarship was created to honor the positive impact that Ann had on so many people.  “As a way to pay it forward, we hope that the scholarship in her name will allow students, who also have a passion for healthcare, to pursue their dreams and be positive, thoughtful healthcare providers in the future” (Elizabeth Lemaire Sanguinetti).

Throughout her life, and especially in her later years, Ann was very appreciative for the care and compassion shown by healthcare providers – both to her and to the patients she had cared for while working as an RN.

Ann and her family moved to Battle Creek in 1961.  After their children were in middle school and high school, Ann decided to pursue her interest in nursing that had begun when she was a child.  Ann received her A.A. in Nursing from Kellogg Community College (KCC) in 1977.  She worked as a nurse at Leila Hospital (now Bronson Batte Creek Hospital) and for a local physician.  She went on to earn a B.Sc. in Nursing from Western Michigan University and a M.S.N. from Wayne State University.  She was a member of the KCC Nursing faculty for 19 years.  Ann found great satisfaction with sharing her love of the nursing profession with the more than 1100 students in her classes over nearly two decades.

Prior to becoming a nurse at Leila Hospital, Ann was very involved with the Leila Hospital Auxiliary (now Bronson Batte Creek Volunteers).  She served in many roles over nearly five decades, most notably as the Follies Chairperson in 1973 and Auxiliary President in earlier years and as Chair of the Scholarship Committee in later years.  She found great joy in her work on the Scholarship Committee, as the scholarships were awarded to students who planned to pursue studies in healthcare fields.
