At Midwest Transplant Network, we proudly work with donor families to create quilts in honor of loved ones who have given the gift of life through organ donation. These beautiful tributes to lifesaving donors travel with us to events throughout Kansas and western Missouri. They are a powerful symbol that helps raise awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation while honoring those individuals who have given gifts of life. View our donor memorial quilts below.

In order to be included in our Donor Memorial Quilts, quilt squares must meet specified guidelines. For more information, please contact us  or view our FAQs.

Quilt 11: Theresa Barton

Theresa was a gentle soul that had a hug for everyone she met. She loved singing whether it was with the radio or at karaoke. She loved looking at pictures of days gone by, to reminisce about remember when. Family was very important to her. She was a mother of five. She was preceded in death by her infant son Joseph and is survived by son Glen, daughter Montie, Cathy and Elizabeth. We laid her to rest with baby Joey and like it says on their tombstone: “Mother and son together for eternity.” We miss her very much but it is a comfort to know that several people have benefited from her donation. God bless those that received her organs and may God giver her hugs from us every day. Love you and think of you every day sister!

Quilt 11: Stewart Wallace Case

Sometime during the year 1957, my mother invited a tall thin young man to Sunday dinner. He was one of her co-workers at Bendix, and was new to the area. He brought many classical records to share. Mom, Dad, Stu and I talked for many hours with a musical background. He had a beautiful smile and a hearty laugh, appreciated good music and told interesting stories. We were beyond impressed with this Renaissance man who joined our family on June 27, 1959.

He was a loving husband, father, and son-in-law, an accomplished artist, an athlete, always optimistic, well mannered, capable of repairing anything, a hard worker, and always congenial. Our minds replay what our hearts cannot delete—his guidance, smile, companionship, and love.

Organ and Tissue Donation, Donor Memorial Quilt (Midwest Transplant Network, Kansas and Missouri)

Quilt 11: Adam James Reams

11/24/89-1/23/12

Adam was born on November 24, 1989, with a birthmark referred to as “an angel’s kiss” on the back of his head. We could not imagine that would symbolize he would become an angle way too soon. Words cannot describe Adam or how much we miss him – his smile and laughter, the twinkle in his eyes, and his fun-filled mischief. This quilt square, however, represents what Adam loved in life-family, friends, outdoor sports and activities, motorcycles and cars. Adam was an intelligent, loving person who was willing to try new things in a quest to live life to the fullest and he encouraged others to do the same. Adam loved to make people laugh and meet new people-one of his favorite sayings was, “A stranger is just someone you haven’t said ‘hi’ to yet.” Adam started college to be an engineer, but his zest to help others led to him nursing just weeks before he passed. Adam encouraged others to be donors and would be so honored that he has helped so many others.
