|In Memoriam: Remembering Trustee Martha Longbrake
It is with great sadness that we note the passing of our trustee,
Martha Longbrake, who died on June 24 after a long struggle with cancer. Martha
joined the San Francisco Theological Seminary Board of Trustees in 2004, and
served as a dedicated member for 10 years.
“Martha was a wonderful board member,” says Marion Stanton,
current Chair of the SFTS Board. “She was very supportive of SFTS but never
hesitated to speak her mind, or vote with her conscience. We already miss her
voice and her wisdom.”
Martha, in addition to being very involved with the SFTS
community, was an elder, volunteer, bible study teacher, and member of the
First Presbyterian Church in Seattle, Washington.
There will be a memorial service held on July 20 at 2:00pm
at First Presbyterian Church in Seattle, Washington at 1013 8th Ave.
Gifts in remembrance of Martha may be made to the Samaritan
Center of Puget Sound (Presbyterian Counseling Service) at 564 NE Ravenna
Blvd., Seattle, Wa 98115.
Please hold Martha and her family in your prayers.
