Three of TRU Community Care’s Board members have reached their term limits. It is with great admiration and appreciation for all they have done for our organization, and for our patients and their families, that we bid a fond farewell to Diana Slough, Tim Schafer, and Dr. Peter Steinhauer.
Diana Slough, Senior Advisory in the Wealth Management Department of First National Bank, has served as a member of the TRU Community Care Board since 2011. Diana was a driving force in fundraising, chairing the signature TRU event, PIZZAZ!, and bringing a community of supporters together each fall to celebrate the good work of the hospice organization. During the six years Diana served, much patient census growth, program expansion, and capital campaign work took place with her guidance. TRU is grateful for her service, and staff look forward to nurturing the many contacts brought to the work of the organization thanks to Diana.
Tim Schafer is a native of Broomfield, Colorado, and a partner in the law firm of Schafer, Thomas, Maez, PC. His legal practice specializes in trust, estate, probate, business, and tax planning services, from fundamental wills, trusts, estates, and business organizations to sophisticated tax planning, estate planning, wealth preservation, executive compensation, and business succession strategies. Tim served on the TRU Community Care Planned Giving Committee from 2009 to 2010, and the TRU Community Care board of directors from 2011-2016. He served as board chair in 2015. Tim’s help with strategic planning, new programming, fundraising, and community support will be missed. Join TRU in thanking Tim for his dedicated service to the patients and families served by TRU with hospice, palliative care, and grief support.
