MRH Foundation Receives $290K Estate Gift from Gordon Pabst, Retired Teacher

Marlette Regional Hospital Foundation Receives $290K Estate Gift from Gordon Pabst, Retired Teacher ~ Marlette Regional Hospital (MRH) will be eternally grateful for the generous estate gift of $290,000 left by the late Gordon Pabst to Marlette Regional Hospital.

Gordon was raised in Marlette and taught elementary education at Marlette Community Schools for 29 years while also managing a promotional products company, Gordon Pabst Enterprises, for 62 years. Though Gordon did not have family, he mentored many students, was a dedicated civic member in his community, and will be remembered as a kind and generous man.
It is apparent from Gordon’s estate recipients—Marlette Regional Hospital, First United Methodist Church’s building fund, and the Sanilac County Community Foundation “Gordon Pabst Scholarship Fund”—that Gordon wanted to leave a legacy and make a difference for residents of the Marlette Community where he was raised and spent most of his life.

Sara Redman, MRH Foundation & Marketing Manager, shares, “Gordon was a unique individual and helped our hospital with many advertising needs over the years. He had the best customer service, was meticulous, and always enjoyed my storytelling of hobby farm ventures that my husband and I were trying. I was completely shocked when I received a call from one of his trustees, Brent Wehner, that he left such a large estate gift to the hospital. He never gave me an indication that he had our hospital included in his estate, and had I known, I would have properly thanked him while he was still with us. Gordon’s gift to our hospital will undoubtedly benefit patients that we serve now and those in future generations to come. He truly was a kind and generous man that will be remembered in his community.”
