Northwest Funeral Chapel hosted its annual Mrs. O’Bee’s Toy House, Sunday, December 12, 2021 from 1 – 3 p.m. at Northwest Family Activity and Events Center.

This event was opened to children up to eight years of age accompanied with their parents/guardians and all were masked, age 2 and older per CDC guidelines.

Santa and his helpers were eager to greet every smiling child who chose a toy, a book and treats provided by the friends of Mrs. O’Bee.

The late Mrs. Ernestine O’Bee was one of the founders of Northwest Funeral Chapel, where she graciously served Milwaukee families for more than 50 years.

Generous and a passionate advocate for children, Mrs. O’Bee Toy House is an extension of the love Mrs. O’Bee had for all children and especially in our Milwaukee community.

Mrs. O’Bee remains a benefactor of the Dr. Terence N. Thomas Memorial Scholarship Fund, Inc. The Dr. Thomas Fund awards college scholarships annually to bright, community-oriented high school seniors and throughout their college careers.

The Dr. Thomas Fund counts elected officials, doctors, lawyers, scientists, social workers, ministers, teachers, communicators and other professionals among its graduates. The graduates continue to honor Mrs. O’Bee’s generous legacy in their respective communities.
