Tinsley was devoted Pink Lady

Dear Editor,

Chilton Medical Center mourns the loss of dedicated Auxiliary member Ruth Tinsley.


Tinsley served CMC as a Pink Lady (Ladies Auxiliary) from 1997-2011. Ms. Tinsley was a familiar face on Monday and Wednesday mornings and any other days she was needed to fill in for others. She worked the reception desk as well as in the gift shop with Evelyn Littleton.

Ms. Tinsley gave graciously of her time to the total of 5,187 hours. Her dedication to the hospital, employees and patients is appreciated beyond words.

A tree will be planted in Chilton Medical Center’s Prayer Garden in her memory.

She will truly be missed. We have lost a valued member of our hospital family.

Anne Taddicken, Chilton Medical Center

    Thank you so much for your kind words about my mother. She truly loved loved loved your wonderful organizations. When she entered the hospital her thoughts were you need to make sure this pink lady or that pink lady had things and make sure I kept you all informed on how she was doing. After my father’s passing the pink ladies were her life line. She would call me and say well I had to do overtime because someone couldn’t come in. She was so proud of the contribution you all made to the community. My sons ride by the hospital and say there is Grandma’s hospital because she truly lived there. I want to take this moment on behalf of my family and thank you Chilton Medical Center staff, doctors and auxillary unit for making my mother’s last years filled with laughter and sense of purpose. There will always be a special place in my heart for this hospital and “pink ladies” at whatever hospital I see them doing their special work.

    Again Thank you,
    Taffine, Ahmad and Noah (the 2 little boys whose antics she talked about all the time)
