Memorial Service Announced for Dorrie Fuchs
Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 7, at Indian Springs School in Indian Springs, Ala., and at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 14, at Washington International School, Tregaron Campus, in Washington, D.C.
As some of you may have heard, our beloved president, Dorrie Fuchs died peacefully Saturday, January 10th, 2015 at four in afternoon. She had spent the last few weeks in UAB’s Palliative Unit where they were able to make her comfortable. The last time I saw her she looked more at peace than I had seen her for months. Her husband, Gareth, was with her and many family members and close friends were able to visit her during these last few weeks.
Dorrie was a powerhouse of a woman who made a real difference in the lives of those she touched. She was a committed, hard working and inspiring president who helped our congregation through some challenging times and loved our faith and our congregation. We have much to be grateful for in having had her in our lives even as our hearts protests her leaving us too soon. We may take some comfort in knowing that Dorrie is now at peace and free from the pain of a body that no longer did her bidding.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Gareth and her family. Cards may be sent to Gareth Vaughan, 61 Oak View Drive Indian Springs, AL 35124.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, February 7th at the Indian Springs Concert Hall. She touched so many lives that our Sanctuary will not hold them all. We will let you know more details later.
Dorrie would want her legacy to be that we carry on in her energetic spirit. Let us support each other in our grief and be grateful she was a part of our lives.
In the Faith,
Rev. Lone Jensen Broussard
