Condolence: I first met Marth Anne the day I started at BGEA in 1983. A year later I was appointed to a position where she became my Administrative Assistant. We enjoyed working together for eight years, and beyond that remained colleagues in International Ministries for many more.
I was a blessed recipient of her sweet spirit, tender heart, undivided loyalty, and professional work ethic. She persevered through the ups and downs of life, always ensuring that in the end the job got done and God was honored.
With so many others I mourn her untimely passing and her quiet but effective presence in our lives will be greatly missed.
My deepest condolences to all her Family, friends, and colleagues. I wish I could be at the service remembering Marth Anne's life.
"For the Lord comforts his people..." (Isaiah 49:13)
I am shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden passing of MarthAnne.
MarthAnne worked for me for several years at the Billy Graham Association/World Wide Pictures in Minneapolis.
She always had such a sweet gentle spirit and a ready smile and laugh. So unassuming and so caring. She cared deeply about other people. And she was always so reliable and faithful in her work.
I will always remember her as one of the very special people that I have ever known.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all her family and friends who today are dealing with the loss and shock and grief.
The thing that eases some of the sting is knowing that she is now with the Lord Jesus Christ that she served so faithfully for so many years. And that she heard Him say, "Well done, good and faithful servant. Welcome HOME! Enter into your rest."
