Oxford HealthCare will host its annual Daughters Without Mothers Spring Tea and Seminar from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at the Messiah Lutheran Church in Springfield, Missouri. This annual event is designed as a time to remember and celebrate mothers and is free to attend.

“It is important, as daughters, that we celebrate our mothers even after they pass and take some time to explore the imprints they have left on our hearts and lives,” said Renee Jenkins, Oxford Hospice Bereavement Coordinator. “Whether it has been 15 days or 15 years, coping with the loss of a mother is something that is never really over. This special event is designed to help daughters during any stage of the grieving process.”

Open to all ages, this spring tea and seminar will have speakers, as well as a guided group conversation to honor and remember mothers, along with light refreshments. Attendees are encouraged to bring a small reminder of their mother for a time of show and tell.

“Whether two months or two decades ago, the loss of a mother has a profound effect on our lives,” said Debbie Cain, Vice President of Oxford HealthCare. “Mother’s Day is approaching, and that can be a difficult time for those who have lost their mother. We are proud to host this event to celebrate our mothers and acknowledge their special place in our lives.”

This event is open to all ages, and there is no charge to attend. Those planning to attend are encouraged to RSVP to Renee Jenkins at 417-883-7500.
