Eternal rest grant unto them,
O Lord, and let perpetual light
shine upon them. May the souls
of all the faithful departed, through
the mercy of God, rest in peace and rise in glory.

Marcella Brown Groce
April 17, 1931 - February 2, 2021
Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory

It is my sad duty to inform you that Marcella Brown Groce, most recently a member of our Welcome Team, and a long-time member of Christ Church, died on February 2, 2021.

She had moved to the Boston area to be closer to her daughters, Karen and Cheryl. Both daughters recall fondly growing up in Christ Church, and both remain active Episcopalians.

Many of you will have strong memories of the Groce family. I recall that Marcella established our smile jar which we were to fill with jokes or cheerful phrases. Our senior warden has provided many smiles for us in the spirit of Marcella.

Marcella's funeral service will take place via Zoom, February 13 at 2:00 p.m. Please contact Mother Elizabeth for details.
