Tribute to an awesome woman…


My friend, Erma Fennell passed away Easter morning…. Funerals take place very quickly in Mexico as they do not embalm, so Monday was her funeral service at church which lasted approximately 6 hours with lots of praise and worship music….loving memories and testimonies from those that had been touched by her life….

People brought flowers from their gardens tied with ribbons, there were lots of fragrant lilies and calla lilies…..every colored flower you can imagine…..there were professional floral arrangements, there were homemade crosses and wreaths that were decorated…there was an unbelievable outpouring of love…..

Services for Erma

Dear friends and family of Erma Fennell,

It is with great sadness, but inexplicable peace, that I report to all of you that this Easter morning around 8AM, Erma went to be with the Lord.  She was walking up to the early morning Easter Service for the Mission Church and other surrounding churches at the top of a hill in Valle Tranquilo.  On the way up, she had a heart attack and was not able to be recessitated by the doctor, Pastor Avitia.  As we kept saying, what better way and time for her to go than serving the Lord on the day we celebrate His resurrection and life.  Please keep her family and friends and all the people that she has touched down here with her life in your prayers.  What a great example she has been to all of us, serving the Lord to her dying day.  I can hardly believe it’s true.

To leave an online condolence please feel free to add a “comment” on this post.

In His Peace,
Christina Harris
