Leslie McSparran Death is not something to fear, according to St. Joseph Hospice volunteer Leslie McSparran. When her father was diagnosed with cancer in 1994, McSparran traveled back to Maryland to care for him. McSparran was impressed by the thorough care the hospital provided patients and their families. The experience inspired her to give back and now volunteers her time with St. Joseph Hospice. McSparran is the August recipient of Fairhaven Memorial Park & Mortuary’s Oliver Halsell Care Award. As a volunteer with hospice, McSparran offers companionship and comfort to the elderly. She explained that she is there mainly to provide social support through activities, talking and just being present for the patient. McSparran also volunteers for the No One Dies Alone program, which offers patients who are actively transitioning a peaceful and reassuring atmosphere during their final hours. Volunteers also provide families with support during this difficult time. After nearly 30 years in aerospace, McSparran changed career paths, admitting that the corporate world didn’t satisfy her need to nurture. A self-described “people person,” McSparran now works for a family-owned catering company called Teak Catering, where she serves as the staffing coordinator. Her job involves organizing staff for each job and providing event support. McSparran will be honored at Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Awards banquet in November at Fairhaven’s Mission Viejo location. The banquet honors a year’s worth of achievements within the local community. Additionally, Fairhaven will make a donation in her honor to her selected charity, St. Joseph Hospital Foundation.
