Frank and Mary Elizabeth Bostwick Nursing Award
Maximum Amount: $500.00
Faculty: Nursing
Occasion: Convocation
Description: Awarded to a graduating nursing student who intends to practice in Prince Edward Island, and who demonstrates an extraordinary sense of compassion and dedication to the profession of nursing.
Background: Frank and Mary Elizabeth Bostwick of Haverhill, Massachusetts and Stanhope, Prince Edward Island, had a relationship that amazed many who met them as a couple or individually. Mary Elizabeth was a teacher, mother to Barbara, their only child, and a life-long partner to Frank. Frank was a journalist and teacher whose love of his wife was, and still is, palpable. Their love of their daughter, travel, reading and writing, history, their church, and all things Canadian, is touching and s ignigicant. Frank Bostwick and Mary Elizabeth arrived unexpectantly in Prince Edward Island in 1980 and fell in love with its beauty and peacefulness. They considered Stanhope, PEI their second home and contributed much to Prince Edward Island for over three decades. Frank and Mary Elizabeth had a unique partnership. They were married for 43 years and firmly planted themselves in giving back to PEI through volunteerism, leadership and support in the Stanhope area and beyond. They were particularly proud of their association and volunteerism with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown, the medicaly facility that Frank and Mary Elizabeth respected and leaned on for assistance over the years. It was with great sadness that Mary Elizabeth passed away in 2000. Frank, and his daughter Barbara, who visits every summer, continue to enjoy all that PEI offers to summer residents, and are deeply committed to the community of Stanhope. This award was established to honour the relationship of Frank and Mary Elizabeth Bostwick and their commitment to healthcare on Prince Edward Island.
