Recording of Bette Olsen memorial service provided to Juneau Live! Studio.
During the 2½ years since March 2020, eleven people from our congregation have died. Many people experienced tremendous loss and trauma during the pandemic. Resurrection, as a congregation, is suffering from the absence of hundreds of years of active participation in this community. We need to grieve. We were able to have memorials for some of these people—in person, online, or delayed. For some, services were held in home communities elsewhere, or in small services graveside. For some of these members of our family, no services have been held at all. We need to remember. We will continue to process the many losses in different manners. One of those ways is as church, the body of Christ crucified and resurrected. We will gather with Scripture, hymns, and prayer. We need to share. Watch the service on Juneau Live!.
Those remembered at this service: Joy Baker, William “Bill” Fritz, Donna Furuness, Jim Hutchison, Niels “Finn” Larsen, Linda Mickle, Peter Neyhart, Bette Olsen, Donna Peel, Rev. Larry Rorem and Marjorie Schmiege.
