Grateful Family Honors Case Manager and Loved One's Memory

By Lauren Anderson, Development Officer of Philanthropy

The Mental Health Center of Denver is honored by the generosity of a grateful family. Mary Frances McMahon was a person we served for nearly three decades. When she passed away at the end of last year, her family wanted to do something to honor both her memory and the dedication of her last case manager, Naomi Evans, LPC. Mary’s siblings were touched by the level of care that Naomi provided to their late sister.

Mary’s siblings; Patrick McMahon, Kevin Michael McMahon and Dr. Kathy Giacomini, decided to set up an endowed fund and annual award in Mary's name, for an outstanding clinician who demonstrates exceptional care for the people we serve.

Naomi Evans was the first recipient of the Mary Frances McMahon Outstanding Clinician Award at the Mental Health Center of Denver’s All-Staff Meeting on May 23. Dr. Kathy Giacomini and her daughter, Alex Giacomini, presented Naomi with the award along with VP of Development for the Mental Health Center of Denver, Ric Durity. The room fell silent when Kathy talked about how the care that Mary received at the Mental Health Center of Denver made all the difference in her life. This fund and award is a testament to the gratitude this family has expressed.

About her special relationship with Mary, Naomi said:

“Mary was one of the sweetest people I had the pleasure of working with. The way she lived her life reminded me to strive to be a great person and always be present. This award means so much to me, and I am honored and overwhelmed by the love and appreciation I have received from Mary’s family. It was an honor to be a part of her life and she has forever left a mark on my heart.”

The Mary Frances McMahon Outstanding Clinician Award ensures that Mary's memory is honored for years to come.
