Ruth April 23 2018

Beloved Saints of St. John's Lutheran Church,
           It is with a heavy heart that I write to tell you that our beloved sister Ruth Roscheska has passed into the arms of her Savior.  After a long battle with cancer and following recent difficulties, the Lord chose to call Ruth into His loving arms.  But even as we mourn with Marianne, we find peace that our Lord saw fit to make Ruth His own in the promise of Baptismal grace, and we raise our voices in thanksgiving with all the angels in heaven that this beloved child of God has found rest and peace at the last.
           It has been decided that visitation will be held at Casey Funeral Home 350 Slosson Ave this Wednesday April 25 from 2 pm-4pm and 7pm-9pm and Thursday April 26 from 2pm-4pm and 7pm-9pm, with Funeral services at St. John's on Friday April 27 at 10:00 am.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Church Office at 718-761-1600.
           May the Lord of all grace and mercy, who sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to be our Savior, bring peace, comfort, and hope to Marianne and all of us who loved Ruth, in the glorious promise of life everlasting in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

In Christ's mercy,
Pastor Bagnall
