We are sad to share the news of a death in our diocesan family.
Betty Sue Cole, mother of Bishop Brian Cole, passed away this morning. Betty Sue Cole will be buried at Harvey’s Chapel in Marmaduke, Arkansas, on Wednesday, August 19. This is the same town where she was born in 1931. Bishop Brian will officiate at a family graveside service.
Almighty God, our Father in heaven, before whom live all who die in the Lord: Receive our sister into the courts of your heavenly dwelling place. Let her heart and soul now ring out in joy to you, O Lord, the living God, and the God of those who live. This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer p. 466)
