Dear Faith Family,

This past Thursday morning, Barbara Hodge died peacefully and entered the heavenly home which Christ has prepared for her. For years, Barbara's joyous smile had brightened the community of Faith Lutheran Church. Two weeks ago, Barbara fell and broke her leg, an injury from which she never recovered. As we pray for her family, friends, and long-time care-giver, Nicole Dezell, we give thanks that Barbara is already whole and smiling with her husband in the resurrection.

The family will be planning an outdoor service in the coming months to place Barbara's remains in Faith's columbarium. We will share those details when they become available. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Far Northern Regional Center, which provided loving care to Barbara for many years. Cards can be sent to both Barbara's son and daughter, Billie Hodge and Susan Burns at 26 Parkhurst St., Chico, CA, 95928.
