We grieve with Pr. Marv & Marcie Schedler, Beth Hales, Joyce Crouch, with Ron (husband) & Greg (son) Stirrat, and all the family at the death of Jennifer Schedler Stirrat on Monday, November 6. Friends from St. Matthew’s are encouraged to attend the visitation at Coble Funeral Home (1155 Shipyard) on Friday, November 10, between 4-7 p.m. Holy Trinity Episcopal in Hampstead has a small worship space and is not conducive to a large crowd attending a funeral.

Rest eternal grant Jennifer, O Lord, and let Light perpetual shine upon her. Amen.
