Burke Barker’s heroic military service earned him a Purple Heart and instilled values of honor, integrity, and duty that helped shape him into
a loving husband, devoted father, and community leader. In 2017, Burke passed peacefully with family at his side under home hospice care from
EvergreenHealth. As part of the We Honor Veterans program, his care givers were trained to meet the unique needs of veterans like Burke.
Today, Burke Barker’s legacy lives on thanks to his loving wife Jeanne’s generous support of Hospice and our We Honor Veterans program. Jeanne’s gift, along with donations from other grateful families, ensures that all patients, including veterans like Burke, are shown the respect, dignity and honor they deserve during their end-of-life transition.

Your $300 gift today will cover Hospice care for patients who are uninsured, underinsured, or unable to pay, allowing us to provide safe, compassionate care to our patients and their families wherever they call home, whatever their background. This support ensures that all our loved ones and veterans are shown the respect, dignity and honor they deserve in the transition at end of life.
