WMC: May 2017
We report with a sense of sadness that Brenda Boyer died suddenly on Wednesday evening (17th May.)
Brenda had suffered a fall at home over the weekend and was recovering in hospital. She had been chatting away to some church visitors in the afternoon.
Brenda and her 48-year ministry as a Local Preacher, mostly in this Circuit, will be remembered with great fondness, and her family will certainly be held in many people's prayers at this time.
Brenda was a person of great faith and devotion, so as we mourn her passing, may we also rejoice in new life in heaven.
Brenda's funeral will be held on Friday 2nd June at Crematorium (Garford) followed by a thanksgiving service at Wallingford Methodist Church at 11:30 am.
Everyone is welcome to attend both services if they wish and also all are invited to stay for a light buffet lunch in the church hall after the church service.
Family flowers only please. Any donations in memory of Brenda will be given to the MHA.
