Praise to God

 

Let us always offer to God our sacrifice of praise.

Hebrews 13: 15

 

You are a great God.

Your character is holy.

Your truth is absolute.

Your strength is unending.

Your discipline is fair….

 

Your provisions are abundant for our needs.

Your light is adequate for our path.

Your grace is sufficient for our sins….

 

You are never early, never late….

You sent your Son in the fullness of time and

 will return at the consummation of time.

 

Your plan is perfect.

Bewildering.  Puzzling.  Troubling.

But perfect.

 

                                                                                     “He Reminded Us of You”

                                                                                 (A prayer for a friend)

Born, January 26, 1908 and passed peacefully into eternal life at 105 years of age on Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at Iler Lodge, Essex, Ontario. Ann was the daughter of William and Ida Parker and loving sister to 6 siblings, all predeceased. Ann married Percy Beach on October 20, 1928; they had three daughters, Leona McBride (Norman) of California; Barbara Lincoln (Bill) of Wisconsin and Patricia of Essex. Percy passed away in 1952 and on October 9, 1955 Ann married Ivan Pettapiece (deceased Nov 11, 1985). Ivan’s son Bill passed away December 24, 1984 and his wife Ruth survives. Ann had 10 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren and 4 great great grandchildren. Ann left the farm for city life in 1928 and returned to the farm in 1955. This quiet, pretty lady always created a loving home for her family and adjusted to numerous changes. Her family, home and church were always the centre of her life. Her independent “I can do it” nature, along with her strong faith in her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ sustained her through many difficult trials. Ann never gave up! Ann taught Sunday school, bible classes, and loved to have Pastors, Missionaries, friends and especially her family in her home. She loved to bake and cook and see people eat everything! Ann was unselfish and offered what she had, to the service of the Lord. Church was important to her, even in the nursing home; however the preacher had better believe and teach God’s Word. Ann was a woman of uncompromising faith in her Lord. Ann was confined to a wheel chair for the last 7 years, yet she wanted to take care of personal needs like brushing her teeth, and washing and brushing her hair. Mom you are walking again in your heavenly home, home at last! Sweet, quiet Ann will be missed by others, her family, especially daughter and best friend, Pat. Good night Mom, I will see you later or in the morning! Miss you Mom; but we know you are safe at last, all because of the Lord Jesus Christ. We thank all the staff at Iler Lodge, Essex for the loving care of Ann since December 16, 2008. (Her extended family). Funeral arrangements are incomplete. For additional information, please contact the Reid Funeral Home & Reception Centre, 87 Maidstone Ave. E, Essex (519-776-4233). Memorial donations made to Gideon’s or the Salvation Army would be appreciated. Family and friends are invited to share their words of comfort and remembrance at www.reidfuneralhome.ca
