Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center is the proud recipient of two prints created by local artist John Morrow. The artwork was donated in memory of the late Sue Skamperle, beloved wife, mother, and community member who passed away unexpectedly in 2015. One printed was given by the late Mrs. Skamperle’s husband Dan, and children, Anton, Marko, and Meriam Skamperle. Mr. Morrow donated the second print. The two prints, “Lady in Morning,” and “Hard to Top,” were chosen to celebrate Mrs. Skamperle’s love for the St. Lawrence River and her fondness for turtles, which she viewed as a symbol of life. The artwork is displayed in the Medical Center’s radiology waiting area. Shown in the photo are Meriam, Dan, Marco, and Anton Skamperle, John Morrow, Chet Truskowski, Claxton-Hepburn board of directors president, and Nate Howell, president and CEO.
