We extend our prayers and sympathy to Margaret Jones and family on the death of Hoxie Jones this morning, Friday April 10, 2020. No memorial plans have been made at this time.
Please hold these families in your prayers this Easter weekend and in the days and months ahead.


The family of Barbara Hepler would like thank the members of Memorial Church for the cards, emails, and messages on social media which we have received in the past few weeks. The outpouring of love shown to us has been overwhelming.  Prayers were certainly felt as we dealt with losing our beloved mother, grandmother, and great- grandmother. Most importantly we would like to thank the ladies of the church who over the past three years, took Barbara in and considered her a member of Memorial.  When Barbara first began residence at Piedmont Crossings, Elaine Rabon asked if she could be added to list to be visited. Little did we know the outcome that would  follow.  There were weekly visits, cards sent, and flowers brought which had graced the alter during Sunday services. These acts of kindness and love were so appreciated.  Each week Barbara would remark and say how much she enjoyed it all. We are called to be disciples of Christ, and Memorial definitely answers that call.
Grace and Peace to you all,
The families of Charles Hepler and Cheryl Lee.
