Cedar Bend Society
The Cedar Bend Society honors donors who have demonstrated a commitment to the future of the St. Croix Valley by including Lakeview Health Foundation in their will or estate plans. The name Cedar Bend comes from a cedar tree-lined curve along the St. Croix River – this curve was a significant marker for early settlers of the valley.
Why we gave
People who donate to the Lakeview Health Foundation have been moved by many different life experiences. These patients, families and providers all see the value in giving back to their community.
We welcome our newest member to Lakeview Health Foundation
We welcome Beverley Lloyd as our newest member to Lakeview Health Foundation’s Cedar Bend Society. Beverley grew up in Lakeland, Minnesota and attended Stillwater High School and Coe College in Iowa. She worked for many years as an executive secretary at 3M. She was also a member of the Methodist church, sang in the choir, and was an active hospice volunteer at Lakeview for many years.
She was a sweet, special lady whose compassion and kindness made her an extraordinary hospice volunteer.
We are grateful to Beverley for the generous gift in her estate plan to support the work of Lakeview Health Foundation’s hospice program.

Answering the call, addressing the need
Mary Gillespie is an advocate and a champion for several causes in our community. She has been blessed with the resources to aid those less fortunate and feels we all have an obligation as members of this community to ensure and sustain a good quality of living in the St. Croix Valley.
When Mary was invited to support Lakeview’s request for the purchase of a new ambulance, she answered the call.
Her late husband (and former board member) Jim was a “car guy” and providing a gift to help purchase a vehicle was something that he would have enthusiastically supported. For Mary it was an easy decision – a gift from them both.
“A strong well-maintained emergency medicine service is an asset in our community and one that impacts us all. Everyone benefits.”
And when asked how giving makes her feel, Mary said, “It gives me pleasure – I am happy to help. I am fortunate to live in the St. Croix Valley. There are needs in our community and how we respond reflects on us as a community. Hopefully each of us in our own way, can do something to help maintain a good quality of life for everyone here for years to come.”
Through her giving she hopes Lakeview will continue to deliver competent, comprehensive care rooted in its commitment to our community.
With the generosity of donors like Mary, we have every confidence Lakeview will be there now for those that need us most. We’re grateful and blessed to have her as a member in our community.
Thank you, Mary, and to each of our donors, staff and supporters, for your partnership.
Nichole’s story: a nurse who sees the benefit to her community
As a nurse manager of Critical Care Services, Nichole Lunde has seen firsthand how patients who desperately need medications sometimes cannot afford them, and how services like music therapy, massage and aromatherapy can have positive effects on patients’ lives.
Nichole gains peace of mind in knowing that her donation through our Employee Giving campaign goes directly to help patients. By giving locally, she has the opportunity to see just how much giving back can help the care team at Lakeview go the extra mile for patients – caring for the whole person in mind, body and spirit.
Bill and Tina’s story: giving back for COVID-19 relief
Bill and Tina Emison always found ways to give back to their community. When the community faced a global pandemic, the couple donated $275,000 to hospitals across the St. Croix Valley, with $123,000 directed toward Lakeview Hospital. The money was used to purchase ventilators and other life-sustaining equipment.
Donors who support Lakeview Health Foundation's annual giving campaign provide valuable support for our health and well-being programs as well as our community initiatives. All donations are recognized on public display at both Lakeview Hospital and HealthPartners Clinic Stillwater.
