2012 Inductees into the Philanthropy
Hall of Fame
At our Annual Philanthropy Day Luncheon, we are always
inspired by stories of individuals who selflessly give back to our
community through their tireless hours of volunteer time and financial
contributions to those in need. We think it is important to recognize
and honor these individuals and families. We know they don’t give back
because of an award; they all do it to help make our world a better
place to live.
For this year’s event, we would like to induct
individuals into our Philanthropy Hall of Fame from Charles, St. Mary’s
and Calvert County. The 2012 inductees are Roberta
Kieliger from Charles County, Margaret
Elizabeth Jarboe and the late Dr. Patrick James Jarboe from
St. Mary's County, and the late John
Dennis “Denny” Murray from Calvert County.

Roberta Kieliger is a seventeen year breast cancer
survivor who was approached in 2007 to create a support group for
seniors who would meet during the day. Although Roberta’s initial
answer was “no”, in the end she agreed. The support group made up of
breast cancer survivors grew to include not just “seniors”, but women
of all ages is now called “Sisters At Heart”.
As the members will tell you, each survivor comes to
them with a different diagnosis and different story to share. Their
purpose is to provide comfort, support and most of all breast cancer
awareness. Sisters At Heart has become the go-to resource for men and
women who have been either diagnosed with breast cancer or know someone
who has. Since inception, the all volunteer member organization,
Sisters At Heart is requested to participate in approximately thirty
events throughout the year. Annually, they partner with Civista and
organize a free Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon for the general
public, where they also honor breast cancer survivors.
If your Charles County sports team is accessorized in
pink there is a good chance it was provided by the Sisters At Heart.
She is committed to teaching everyone the importance of early detection
of breast cancer. Prior to moving to Charles County, Roberta
volunteered for the St. Mary’s Extension Council, Maryland Extension
Homemakers Board, University of Maryland Extension Advisory Council and
was instrumental in forming the Fifth District Extension Homemakers
Group, which celebrated its 25th Anniversary last year.
Dennis “Denny” Murray, Calvert County
The late John Dennis “Denny” Murray was a home builder
and real estate developer in Calvert County for over 30 years.
Originally from Greenbelt, Maryland, he started Bay Mills Construction
Company in 1973 and developed many communities and built many homes for
the citizens of Calvert County, making it what it is today. Denny’s
ability to motivate others in his community by utilizing his trademark
“out of the box” thinking helped solve issues and find solutions to
problems that were not the most obvious, but were the most effective.
Denny served on the Board of Directors at Calvert Bank,
was a member of the Board of Directors at Calvert Memorial Hospital,
served on the Maryland Health Care Commission, was a member and
President of the Democratic Central Committee of Calvert County, was a
member of Leadership Maryland, Founding Director of the Anne Marie
Gardens Sculpture Garden, Co-Founder of the Annual Cancer Crusade Gala
in Chesapeake Beach, brought the Christmas in April program to Calvert
County and donated to many civic and local organizations.
Motivated by his deep faith in charity and good works,
Denny always felt it was his duty to help those in need because he was
in a position to do so. Denny embraced this mission, doing so without
accolades or publicity, always deflecting praise away from his role.
Instead, he always acknowledged the hard work of those people that
joined him in turning his vision into a reality, which made his
contributions to Calvert County possible.
Jarboe and the late Dr. James Patrick Jarboe, St. Mary’s
Despite their very busy lives as parents of five
children, Margaret and Dr. James Jarboe managed to volunteer their time
and talents to the St. Mary’s community and beyond. Dr. Jarboe was
among the group of founders of the St. Mary’s Home of the Elderly now
known as Cedar Lane Senior Living Community located in Leonardtown. In
addition, Dr. Jarboe along with Dr. William Marek, and Mrs. Ella Mae
Russell founded Health Share of St. Mary’s, a place where underinsured
and uninsured could receive medical care.
Margaret Jarboe, known by her children as Mother
Extraordinaire, has been a lifelong volunteer at the Church of
Ascension in Lexington Park, Maryland. In addition, she has volunteered
for a number of years at Historic St. Mary’s City, Birthright of
Southern Maryland, and Three Oaks Center. For twenty years, both
Margaret and Dr. Jarboe were a part of a team that went on many
missionary trips to Central America to provide support, medical and
dental care to the underserved people in Guatemala and Honduras.
“They have always lived very conservative and
modest lives. They were/are both very involved in their churches and
have donated much of their wealth to the less fortunate. They both
exemplify models of Christian servitude to their community”
stated Tom Jarboe. In June 2011 just before Dr. Jarboe’s death, a
medical building was dedicated to him for his exemplary work.
