Dorothea at Easter, 2011
Let Us Remember
Let us remember our beloved Chapel member, Dorothea Mitchell Queen, who passed away on August 10 in Groton, NY. A memorial service of music and celebration will be held this Saturday on her birthday, All Saint’s Day, November 1, 2:00 p.m. at the Chapel.
Accomplished musician and educator, great lover of children, Dorothea lived a full life of service in the many church communities where she and her husband Rev. Merritt Queen (who predeceased her) were called.
Dorothea's last Chapel attendance, on the last Sunday of her life, was a radiant experience for all. Her beloved daughter Bethany brought her; dear friends Dr. Bob Johnson and others sat close by. Dorothea took communion with us, in fellowship with the Holy Spirit. She freely gave warm smiles and hand-clasps.
