In Remembrance

We honor the memory of those we have lost and will forever hold them close to our hearts.

Carolyn Sampson
Conference President - St. Margaret of Scotland Parish

It is with a heavy heart that we share the loss our Vincentian sister Carolyn Sampson.  Carolyn served the Society of St. Vincent de Paul with a focused dedication, as Vice President of the St. Margaret of Scotland Conference under Harry Ohde and then assumed the role as Conference President when Harry took over as District VI.  She was a good woman who overcame much during her lifetime, including personal health issues and was a loyal friend.  Carolyn understood that one must go where help is needed and never backed away from the opportunity to serve her brothers and sisters in need.  She is survived by her husband and family, and we ask that you please keep her and her family in your prayers.

Michael J. Fox
St. Linus Conference - Vincentian

It is with a heavy heart that we share the loss of our Vincentian brother Mike Fox.  Mike was the rarest of men — a sweet and gentle soul who was loved by everyone who knew him. He never forgot a birthday or anniversary and was always interested in what you were doing. He never said an unkind word about anyone. Like George Bailey in “It’s a Wonderful Life,” Mike was the richest man in town because of his countless friends. As one of his neighbors said, “the world would be a far better place if it had more people like Mike.”

Mike is survived by his brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, and many, many friends. We ask that you keep his family and friends in your prayers.
