Nominated by Ruth Ann Stewts

Volunteered for:

Cypress Glen Nursing & Rehab

Length of Service:

15 hours per month for 8 years

March 1, 2014

Floy Eldridge is a quiet person who has a passion to sew & quilt . She started about 8 to 10 years ago making beautiful quilted lap blankets and adult appropriate bibs for residents in the nursing home. She wanted to share her finished projects with others that would enjoy and benefit as much as she loved making them. She decided to just go around to all the nursing homes in her area trying to find who could benefit from her finished products. I'm so glad that Floy came to Cypress Glen with her eloquently finished bibs & lap blankets. Words can not describe the quality of her work. She pays close attention to details and has developed relationships with others that help her locate the perfect materials for her projects.
She spends an average of 15 plus hours a month locating, quilting, sewing, ironing, and delivering her products to Cypress Glen. Her passion for her work does not stop there, she will even take ones that are worn or damaged and mend them back to new.
It is such a pleasure for our residents to go to any restaurant and place one of Floy's beautiful bibs on. We use her lap robes at Christmas, bingo, for new residents and the list goes on.
We have received so many compliments on the beauty of the work. She ask for nothing in return but that her projects are shared with others.
