IN A STATEMENT MADE ON 16 FEBRUARY 2007, RICHARD (DICK) GRUENWALD, THE CHAPEL’S FINANCIAL SPONSOR, DOCUMENTED THE FOLLOWING: “IT MUST BE REMEMBERED THAT THIS WAS A CATHOLIC HOSPITAL, PRIVATELY OWNED BY THE SISTERS OF ST. MARTHA. THEREFORE, IT WAS EXPECTED THE CHAPEL WOULD BE INCORPORATED IN THE ORIGINAL BUILDING. IT (THE CHAPEL) WAS DECORATED AND UPDATED FOR GREATER USE BY THE STAFF AND PATIENTS … IN THE EARLY 1970’S. THIS (RENOVATION) WAS PAID FOR AND SPONSORED BY AN ESTATE LEFT TO BE USED FOR CHARITY. THE EXECUTOR OF THE ESTATE (DICK) CHOSE TO USE THE MONEY TO REFURBISH THE CHAPEL. (MY) MOTHER (LUCY) LEFT MONEY FOR CHARITY (DECEASED 1 MAY 1970) AND ST. MICHAEL’S HAD NO MONEY FOR THESE TYPES OF THINGS.” DICK GRUENWALD CLAIMED HIS MOTHER’S ESTATE PAID OUT $5,500 FOR THE CHAPEL. LUCY, HE SAID, “WAS A GREAT FRIEND OF THE SISTERS OF ST MARTHA AND ST. MICHAEL’S HOSPITAL”. DICK SERVED ON THE HOSPITAL’S BOARD IN THE EARLY 70S. ___________________________________________ IN 2010, NICOLE HEMBROFF, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF PALLET RACKING. SHE MET WITH JAKOB MARTENS (WHO HAD PURPORTEDLY MADE THE PANELS) TO DISCUSS THE PANELS.
