KAMLOOPS — Kamloops Hospice Association has opened the doors to its new ‘Outlook for Peace’ building.

The idea came from a Kamloops couple, Jeff and Joan Glaicar, who spent a lot of time at hospice while they were saying goodbye to their dear friend Joanne.

“She was young. She had two children. My wife helped her children throughout the journey, which was a 10-year journey with brain cancer,” Jeff Glaicar told CFJC News.

Jenny Quince Retires after 39 years

Founding member at Kamloops Hospice retiring after serving community for almost four decades

Amandalina Letterio – Oct 30, 2020 / 4:00 am

A founding member of Kamloops Hospice is retiring after 39 years.

Jenny Quince has taken pride in caring for people during their end-of-life experiences.

“It’s been quite the journey for me and I think I’ve learned a lot more compassion working here, patience. I’ve feel that over the years I have become a kinder person,” says Quince.

In addition to deeply missing her colleagues, she says she will miss interacting with patients and their families.

“Kamloops is one of the most generous communities I think you could live in. It’s grown over the years, but we’re still like a little town,” she expresses. “This city is the best.”
