Couple Gifts Home To Local Foundation

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Billings Clinic Foundation received a very special and historic gift from a couple Monday.

Don and Marilyn Floberg owned a house on North 30th Street since 1967, and the foundation announced Monday that the couple has donated the home to the Billings Clinic. The house was built in 1912, and the Flobergs were the third owner of that house.

"So glad, really, that Billings Clinic will take care of it. It fits in with their mission, and it fits in with ours. We are thrilled to be able to do this." said Marilyn Floberg.

"This is a gift from the heart. Don and Marilyn have been so closely affiliated with our organization for a number of years. We just can't thank them enough for sharing this gift that will serve generations to come for the Billings Clinic organization." said Jim Duncan with the Billings Clinic Foundation. He went on to say that Billings Clinic will find a way to use the home.
