The Loss of a Friend

It is with a great deal of sadness that we heard late last night about the death of longtime Network member and a former member of our Board of Directors, Rev. Beverly Conway.  Pastor Beverly served at Redeemer Lutheran Church in South Holland, Illinois.

She graduated from Loyola University, and then from the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago.  She has served as a member of the youth ministry team of the Metro Chicago Synod of the ELCA.

Pastor Beverly served for six years on the Board of the ELCA Youth Ministry Network.  During that time, she was a tireless advocate within the Network for ways that the Network could support those in under-served communities.  Beverly had a prophetic voice and was willing to speak truth, even when it was uncomfortable for someone to hear.  She did this with grace and love.

Pastor Beverly had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh.  She enjoyed traveling and she reveled in good conversation with friends.  I will remember the twinkle in her eye when she smiled.

Her faith was her passion, and she loved being a pastor of the church.

We mourn her loss, but we celebrate the fulfillment of the promises of God in her life.

When we hear of funeral arrangements, we will make those known.

Please keep Pastor Beverly’s family members and her congregation in your prayers.
