Lights for Life Honors Lois Sutphin

The holiday season was welcomed in style December 1 as the Fauquier Hospital Auxiliary held its annual Lights for Life celebration. All those who have donated to the hospital over the last year were invited to the event and the spruce trees on Hospital Hill were illuminated. Community members also donated to the hospital in honor of loved ones with the purchase of lights on the trees.

Top of the Tree honoree was Lois Sutphin, RN, an Infusion Center nurse at the hospital and volunteer extraordinaire. Mrs. Sutphin has been an enthusiastic volunteer for the public schools, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, as well as the Warrenton Sunrise Lions Club and many other smaller organizations. She is the current president of the Fauquier chapter of the American Cancer Society and has for years been one of the organizers of the Relay for Life and the ACS annual Daffodil Sale and Fashion Show. Mrs. Sutphin has been a nurse with the hospital since 1973 and was the 2002 recipient of the annual Ruth Krusie Excellence in Nursing Award.
