A note from Pastor Steve about Ann Albert: It is with a heavy heart that I share that Ann Albert died this morning (September 31. 2021). She was a vibrant part of First Presbyterian Church for several years and both she and Ray received Honorary Lifetime Memberships before they left to move closer to their sons a few years ago. Ray is doing well, but is understandably distraught. As of my conversation with Ray a few moments ago, there are no plans yet for her service or memorial - but the formal services will take place in the Chicago area where they presently reside. Please continue to hold Ray Albert in your prayers. The care of Ann is now committed to our Lord - may God continue to be gracious to her.
