The Carmen Dailey Richburg Endowment


The Carmen Dailey Richburg Endowment at the Hospice of East Texas Foundation was established in 2020 by Mrs. Richburg’s son, Rustin Richburg, with contributions from her family and friends.


Born and raised in Grapeland, Texas, Mrs. Richburg made her home and raised her family in the same community for her entire life.  She was known for her pride in her community, especially for the many ways she supported the Grapeland youth.  She was also known for her pride in her family, her marriage of 54 years and the way she deeply loved her husband, sons and her extended family. 


“Our mother taught us the special gift of helping others,” said Rustin Richburg.  “Our family experienced unconditional love, support and kindness from everyone at Hospice of East Texas.  Establishing an endowment in our mother’s name is a way for us to remember our mother’s legacy, to help others and to pay tribute to the beautiful people that were so very kind to us.”


“Mother always carried a special sparkle with her,” said Rustin, “and her sparkle will always be with us.”


Distributions from the Carmen Daily Richburg Endowment are unrestricted, to be used in the area of greatest need by Hospice of East Texas
