R.I.P. Laurelle Findler, ODNW. Our beloved parishioner Laurelle died last Sunday at around 9 am after a short stay at Sechelt Hospital. She was admitted a week ago and her condition rapidly deteriorated over the weekend. A lifelong Anglican and a respected elder, Laurelle had answered God's call to serve in different capacity throughout her life. From her 2016 Order of the Diocese of New Westminster citation:
We will miss you immensely, Laurelle. May you rest in peace, and may God's perpetual light shines upon you."... Jumping into parish life as Secretary of the Church Committee and the ACW and then as People’s Warden in 1992. She deftly guided the parish through many upheavals including two new priests. As President of the ACW for nine years she oversaw innumerable fundraisers and projects. Her “swan song” was financing a new kitchen which is now available for community meals."
