BEAVERTON — Maryville Nursing Home celebrated 50 years in June, with the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon recalling valiant actions taken in 1963.   
Sr. Charlene Herinckx, current superior general of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon, noted that Maryville was a story of faith for the Sisters, who mortgaged their motherhouse to obtain the needed funding to build the home, which is located on their campus here.

"When I think of the decisions they had to make in order to have the finances to build Maryville and when I know how badly they wanted to serve people, it just does something to my heart and inspires me to try to emulate what they have done," Sister Charlene said during a party at the home, complete with cake.

“Sometimes a journey begins with a leap of faith," said Kathleen Parry, Maryville president. "The Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon took that leap more than 50 years ago when they decided to establish a nursing home. They had no funding. Few of the Sisters were nurses. They were guided by their faith.”

Denny Doyle, Beaverton mayor, pointed out that in 1963, Murray Boulevard hadn’t been completed yet. For hospital or nursing home care, the town's residents had to drive to Portland or Hillsboro.

"But the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon had a vision," Doyle said. "Because that’s what they do. They see needs in our community and, quietly and humbly, they do what needs to be done to meet those needs.”

Sister Adele Marie Altenhofen, president of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon Ministries Corporation, said the day was a celebration of the past, but also a moment to look forward to the next 50 years. She announced plans for a new wing with 16 skilled nursing beds. The facility will be staffed at all hours. Groundbreaking is scheduled for fall. In addition, plans are underway to remodel and expand two dining rooms.

Guests of honor at the party included Sister Theresa Ann Bunker, who spent most of her nursing career at Maryville, and Sister Geraldine Bernards, longtime administrator.

Sister Theresa Ann remembers the long hours of ministry and the joy that was part of it. "We're very proud of what Maryville has become," she said.
