Memorial Scholarship Biographies
Bernard F. Smith
Bernard F. “Bernie” Smith retired from Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam in 1989 after working there for 23 years as Business Office Manager. During that time he served as a director of the Northeastern Connecticut Health Care Credit Union.
A friend and colleague captured all sides of Bernie in a Norwich Bulletin column when he wrote “from the first time anyone met Bernie Smith, you were his friend. His love of people surfaced the minute you engaged him in conversation.” “He always extended himself to others beyond the family boundaries” and then he went on to say how after his retirement in 1989 from Day Kimball Hospital and an illustrious 23-year career, he made himself available to his successor to help him settle into the job. “He was a person who shared himself and his love, whether it was at work, on the golf course, in a social setting, or at an occasional get-together.”
Bernie modeled the importance of community service and the idea of giving of your time generously to others. Bernie believed in treating people with dignity and respect, something for which the people who knew him as a co-worker and friend appreciated along with his unfailing sense of humor. He made friends from all walks of life and was universally liked and respected by employees in all departments at the hospital.
This scholarship was named in his honor to recognize his service to the Northeastern Connecticut Healthcare Credit Union as part of the Board of Directors and a founding member as well as his contributions to the healthcare community of Northeastern Connecticut through his work at Day Kimball Hospital.

After graduation, she commenced her nursing duties beginning at Day Kimball Hospital. Lucille worked as a visiting nurse, with hospice patients, and as the 1st head start nurse at Putnam Grammar School. Beyond Putnam, CT, she also worked as a nurse in Maryland, Colorado, and even at a military base hospital in the Philippines.
Lucille set up four clinics in Putnam, Plainfield, Brooklyn and Thompson for senior healthcare and toe nail cutting where she worked until her retirement in 2018. Lucille compiled 60 years of nursing. She received the prestigious Nightingale Award for excellence in nursing in 2014. Lucille always said that she felt best when she was amongst the people that needed her care. Her husband, Paul, says “Lucille left a legacy matched by none”.
