I have the honour of being the Minister Emerita at Ladner United. I was minister here and at St. Stephen’s from 1987-2000 after being ordained in 1984 and serving in rural Alberta for 3 years. After being on long term leave for a year, healing from cancer, I returned to part-time ministry in churches in New Westminster, Vancouver and Richmond before retiring in 2015. I love living in Ladner (since 1984) and its small town, rural nature. My passions these days run to gardening, walking each day, reading, trying to keep up with family and friends, offering spiritual direction, and trying to be useful at our church–volunteering or leading worship when called upon.
