The Fasick (Madden)
Grady Scholarship Fund
Stories from the donors that have helped transform The Nursing Foundation of Pennsylvania.
Flo held a distinguished career in professional nursing. She graduated from South Baltimore General Hospital’s School of Nursing in 1931. After serving five years in psychiatric nursing, Flo returned to General Hospital as assistant director of nursing. In 1948, Flo’s husband, Thomas, was transferred to the Naval Supply Depot in Mechanicsburg. They settled in Camp Hill with their daughter, Nancy (who also became a nurse but preceded her mother in death). Flo held positions at Harrisburg Hospital and the Visiting Nurse Association of Harrisburg.
After retiring in 1973, Flo served on boards including the Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation and the American Association of University Women. Along with her second husband, Hamlin, she lived at Bethany Village – where you could find her playing jazz on the lobby piano. At age 101, Flo passed away in 2012.
It is with great pride and gratitude that NFP distributes this scholarship gift on behalf of Mrs. Grady-Fasick.
