Ruth Schultz funeral was held on Saturday, September 23 2023 at 2:00 pm. Jim Schultz and the rest of the Schultz family were very appreciative of the care and thought by many Trinity members in order to make the funeral very successful.

At this time, I wish to thank the following people for making the sandwiches: Iris Taylor, Cathy Bennett, Amelia Torrie, Joyce Kimble and Carol Young. I also wish to thank Marion Mackenzie, Jayne Martin, Beth Catherwood and Lillian Partridge for baking squares.

Another thank you to Juanita Murray and Marion Mackenzie for serving coffee and tea. Without all these helpers we would not be able to offer funerals or memorials.

If you are interested in making sandwiches and baking for funerals, please give your name and number to Sue in the office or call me, Karen Foote (289)686-8863.

Now I need to give a huge thank you to the following people who have graciously assisted behind the scenes in the kitchen. These people are: Olive Macoomb, Iris Taylor, Marg Telford and Barb Carnegie. Words can never express my gratitude to these four individuals.
