Betsy Rodriguez, Texas Health Arlington Memorial
Rodriguez has been volunteering in the Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital Atrium Gift Shop since she retired from the Grand Prairie ISD system nearly six years ago. The Dallas native moved to Arlington to be closer to her sister after the passing of their mother.
“I lived in Carrollton when my mother got sick,” Rodriguez said. “I would drive across town to Texas Health Arlington Memorial to visit her. Family members and I would go to the old chapel to pray. I spent a lot of meaningful time there, and with Chaplain Dorsey, who was instrumental during that time.
The chapel became very important to Rodriguez during the days her mother was a patient at the hospital. When she learned that the chapel was undergoing a renovation to become the Dan Dipert Family Chapel, she wanted to contribute, both in her fundraising role with the Texas Health Arlington Memorial Auxiliary and on a personal level.
