Marietta Boxley (McFarland)

I am sad to report the death of Marietta McFarland, wife of George. She died today, Saturday, October 26, 2019 of cancer.  Thankfully her illness was of comparatively short duration and she had no pain, a fantastic blessing!

George and Marietta worked tirelessly in the Mail Receiving Section of Mail Processing for over 30 years in the Worldwide Church of God.

Please pray for George and their two sons David and Brian.
