Brothers and Sisters,
It is with deep sadness that we report the shocking news of the sudden death of the Rev. Myra Carroll-Pezella on Sunday, September 4th. Myra, who had a history of heart problems collapsed in the pulpit during the morning service and was rushed to the hospital in Buffalo where she was later pronounced dead. Myra was pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Howard Lake, MN and a member of the Committee on Ministry. She will be greatly missed by her family, congregation, friends, and colleagues. We give thanks for her life and ministry and proclaim her passing into the eternal church triumphant. We ask that PTCA clergy please make every effort to attend the memorial service with robes and stoles for a procession to honor our colleague who has died in service to the Church. Service time and location will be announced soon.
