89-year-old woman’s long time wish comes true


DEER CREEK (WEEK) – A Woodford County woman’s long time wish came true Thursday.

El Paso resident Mary Vandegraft, 89, is in hospice, and had one more item on her bucket list, and that was to ride in a hot air balloon.

Surrounded by family, and with the help of her Compassionate Vitas Healthcare Hospice team, she was able to cross that off her list.

“It’s just one of the things that I didn’t think that I would ever get to do. Here I am. I’m thrilled,” said Vandegraft.

Nearly 50 family members and healthcare workers were there to support Vandegraft’s wish come true.
