Toni and Trish House
Toni and Trish House for the Care of the Terminally Ill provides compassionate, dignified end-of-life care in a peaceful, home-like environment.
The home fulfills the wishes of two special women who did not know each other in life. Yet in their deaths, their families have created a beautiful home for the dying. The house is a collaborative effort of two families who lost a loved one. The Toni & Trish House is named for Antoinette “Toni” (Cianek) Waskevich, who died in an automobile accident at the age of 52, and Pat “Trish” McKelvey, who died from cancer in 2005 at the age of 75.
The families of both women had independently started funds in hopes of someday creating a home for the terminally ill. Upon learning of each other's efforts, the families joined together to support and form the Toni and Trish House for the Terminally Ill. The home opened to the first guest in March 2008.
