Regina Burns Hoskins, age 94, widow of Charles Daniel Hoskins, Sr., died at her daughter’s home in Adelphi, MD on June 15.
Retired Director of Outpatient Services at Central Baptist Hospital, she was a member of the US Army Nurse Corps in WWII while attending Robert Packer School of Nursing in Sayre, PA. She was a graduate of Lexington Community College and completed additional graduate work at Bellarmine University and the University of Kentucky. She was a registered nurse.
Regina was a life member of the UK Alumni Association. She was an active member of Christ the King Cathedral and school, served as Secretary of the Altar Society, PTA President, Girl Scout Leader, and school volunteer. She was an advisory committee member to the practical nursing program at Central KY Technical College. She was one of the founding members of the St. Joseph Hospital Auxiliary and served as its vice president. In 1980 she began her “out-of-home” career and spent 20 memorable years at Central Baptist Hospital where her brilliant smile and warm hugs made her a favorite of peers and patients. She was an avid bridge player and cherished her many bridge friends.
Her main passion in life was her family. Her 60-year marriage to Chuck was a shining example of love and devotion that has been passed down to her children and grandchildren. Her cheerful disposition, winning smile, compassionate nature, and spirit of adventure endeared her to all who knew her.
