Pastor of Visitation & Senior Life

Introduction

When I retired from full-time ministry in 2014, I felt that God still had more for me to do as a pastor and was excited to be called to Memorial Park as part of the pastoral care team and to guide the ministry to others in the “third stage of adulthood”. This call gives me a chance to use the many skills and experiences I have gained as a director of Christian Education, solo pastor, and associate pastor in over twenty-five years of ministry. Senior adults have so much to offer all of us in the church and yet they still need nurturing and encouragement in their ever-growing faith in Christ. They bless me in every encounter I have with them. It’s been a joy to be “pastor to the seniors.” My husband, David (retired for 15 years from G.E.) and I love Pittsburgh, which has been our home since 2010. We were delighted when our daughter and her family joined us here in 2014. They worship with us at Memorial Park.
