All of us at Interfaith Coalition mourn the passing of Bess Christman, and lift up her legacy of caring for people in need. Bess is legendary at Interfaith. She served on our very first board in 1981, right up until 2008. Her lifetime of generosity, compassion, dedication and selflessness truly served our community. Grounded in her deep faith, Bess put her heart into Interfaith's programs, as well as many other community programs that worked to help others. We fondly recall many things about Bess, not least of which were her fabulous pies! We always opened the auction each year with Bess's Homemade Pies (not only the best you'd ever eat, but also so popular that they raised lots of money for Interfaith, too!).
And, if you had the great pleasure of knowing Bess, you'll remember that she never met a stranger. We celebrate Bess and are thankful for her devotion to her fellow brothers and sisters. What a legacy she has left in our world.
