Bessie enjoyed serving others, loved to garden and spend time with her family.
Our sweet mom passed away … And we’re confident she went eagerly… to be with the lord and to be with her husband she’d been separated from for oh so many years…
She suffered from an aggressive progression of Dementia for the past few years. It is a horrible disease. She was a very sweet soul that honestly lived to serve and please others. She continually gave of herself, her time, and all she had, selflessly. With as much as she gave & loved, there is no doubt that she crossed the finish line hearing.. “Well done, good and faithful servant”.
Her Memorial Service will be held Saturday, January 25th 2 P.M. at Koinonia Fellowship, 500 Main Street, E. Rochester. Refreshments will be served following the service.
