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 Ms. Naomi Hagen, wife of the Rev. Dr. Mark Hagen, who died Sunday, September 8, 2019, in Rockford, Illinois.
Visitation will be held on Friday, September 20, 2019, from 9:00 a.m.-10:45 a.m. at St. Mark Lutheran Church, 675 N. Mulford Road, Rockford, Illinois. A Memorial service will follow at 11:00 a.m. at the church.
As the church, we offer our sympathy to Naomi’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
