RON BUONAURO MEMORIAL GARDEN

St. Patrick’s Residence, located at 1400 Brookdale Rd. in Naperville is a nursing home and rehabilitation facility for the elderly located in a quiet, residential neighborhood in Naperville, Illinois. For over 40 years, the Sisters, their staff and volunteers have lovingly cared for individuals in the autumn of their years.


Each year, the Naperville Sunrise Rotary Club assists in the maintenance of their south patio to enhance the outdoor space for resident's, guests, and staff, in memory of Sunrise Rotarian and Paul Harris Fellow Ron Buonauro, who passed away in 2008. Ron was dedicated to the Carmelite Sisters at St. Patrick's Residence and spent many hours visiting with the aged and infirmed at St. Pat's.


The inaugural grant for this project was made possible through a partnership between The Rotary Club of Naperville-Sunrise, The Rotary Club of Naperville-Downtown (444 Club), the Buonauro Foundation, and Rotary District 6450.
