Dear friends in Christ,
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is with sadness that I report to you the death of Mr. Orv Kersten, husband of the Rev. Dr. Linda Kersten, who died Wednesday, April 3, 2019 i,n Elgin, Illinois.
People will begin gathering at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at Geneva Lutheran Church, 301 South Third Street, Geneva, Illinois, and funeral services will follow at 11:00 a.m. at the church.
As the church, we offer our sympathy to Orv’s family and friends and because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we rejoice in God’s promise of eternal life, comfort, and hope.
Walking with you,
Bishop Jeffrey Clements
