Beloved Members of St. Martin’s,
You are invited to remember and celebrate the life of Lynn Lange on Saturday, November 5, at 11:00 am at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, Ellisville. Lynn Lange passed away August 4, with her beloved John at her side, comforted by the sacraments of Christ's Church. Lynn was a devoted, beloved member of our choir, a dedicated lay reader, and a caring, faithful friend to so many. Lynn Diane (Lutzke) Lange was born in Chicago on April 24, 1946. She was baptized into Christ's resurrection on September 22 in the Episcopal Church of the Atonement in Chicago. Eighty miles away, her husband, John, was baptized on the same day in Racine, Wisconsin. John always contended they were soul mates. Lynn was a lifelong choir member. For the past 23 years she was an active participant in the St. Martin's choir. She dearly loved this choir; to share the love of Christ in song was an abiding comfort to her. In April of this year Lynn was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. During her in-home hospice care there was a tremendous outpouring of love from the St. Martin’s community. The family would like to express particular gratitude to those members who visited with Lynn on a regular basis during her final months. We will be forever grateful to Mary Drastal, Beverly Kinkade, Leslie Pattengill, Gail Schneider and Nancy Sinclair. We would also like to express our gratitude to Lynn's college roommate, Ruth Lundblad, who traveled from her home in Eau Claire, Wisconsin to be with Lynn for three weeks. Finally, we would like to thank Mother Leslie, Rev. Shug and Father Al for showing forth God's love in communion and final blessing. The love of Christ and comfort that they gave to Lynn will always be remembered. If you would like to make a donation in Lynn's memory, please consider giving to the music program at St. Martin’s parish church.
Depart, O Christian soul, out of this world; In the Name of God the Father who created you, In the Name of Jesus Christ who redeemed you, In the Name of the Holy Spirit who sanctifies you. May your rest this day be in peace, And your dwelling place in the Paradise of God.
