A couple weeks ago, our new Senior Warden, Sandra Baril, shared a link on Facebook that greatly deserves to be shared on our blog. The link is to Ben Irwin's "11 Things I Love About the Episcopal Church". (http://benirwin.me/2015/01/22/11-things-about-the-episcopal-church/) Enjoy!!
Our friend and lifelong member of Christ Church, Gloria Lombardi passed away on January 21st. Gloria will be greatly missed and we share her obituary, most of which she wrote.
Gloria Lombardi, 78, passed on Wednesday evening, January 21, 2015, following a long battle with cancer.
She was born April 3, 1936, in a farmhouse east of Sheridan, Montana, to Nifty and Lillian Costle. She lived her entire life in the valley.
She is survived by her husband, Bob Lombardi; her son and daughter-in-law, Lee and Pollann Bruner of Butte; and her three grandchildren, Robert, Michael and John. She is preceded in death by her sons, Stephen and Michael.
She attended 12 years of school in Sheridan, and graduated from Western Montana College in Dillon. She taught school for 20 years in the Twin Bridges and Sheridan districts. Gloria was very active in community service throughout her entire life. she served on the 4-H Council for many years, helped establish the scouting program in Twin Bridges, served on the Twin Bridges City Council, and with her friends ran the poultry and rabbit projects at the Madison County Fair. She was a lifelong member of Christ Church in Sheridan.
Gloria and Bob farmed outside of Whitehall. She raised cattle, sold eggs, and was very proud of her small flock of purebred Rambouillet ewes.
Gloria enjoyed playing cards every week with her friends, going to the players in Virginia City, drives through the Upper Ruby, family dinners, horseback riding, holidays and Mass on Sunday. She will be deeply missed by her family, her friends and the community.
The congregation of Christ Church is thankful for the blessings that Gloria brought to our community.
