Emmy Bettendorf sings Franz Liszt’s “Es muss ein Wunderbares sein” (1929)


I am pleased to announce the permanent installation of Winding Walk at the Clarissa C. Cook Hospice House in Bettendorf, IA.  On Tuesday May 8, we enjoyed a lovely dedication and reception at the Hospice House.  I am honored that Winding Walk will be on the walking path for Hospice patients to enjoy, while also further enhancing the beautiful grounds. 

A huge “Thank you” to my long time supporters and benefactors; Maryanne Hamilton, Gary and Mary Gemberling and Mark and Becky Christy,  Genesis Health Services Foundation, Clarissa C. Cook Hospice House, Treiber Construction and my installation crew.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to learn Japanese. You inspired me to become a Japanese teacher myself, and now here I am, teaching Japanese in two different schools and driving back and forth between them every day, the same way that you did when you were my Japanese teacher… and I’m loving every minute of it.

Your student,
