Email This Article ... Printer Friendly ...

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.
