In Memoriam… We are saddened to reflect on the loss of one of our most cherished and respected elders – a matriarch of our church – who served this church for nearly forty years. Ann Carlson survived kidney dialysis for many years, welcomed a kidney transplant and continued thru it all to serve and to lead her church and her community. She taught school, cared for sick and dying family members, travelled the world and was always ready to engage in spirited conversation with interesting people. Ann touched the lives of many Texadans, and she will be sorely missed. A Celebration of her life will be held later.
