Meridian Wesley Chapel women honor leader


The United Methodist Women of Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church in Meridian recently lost a friend and example with the death of Mary Frances McAlpine. 

The women recently approved a resolution citing Mrs. McAlpine for her leadership. It reads, in part:  

“WHEREAS, the Wesley Chapel United Methodist Women has lost a fine loyal member and the world has lost a noble character in the passing of Mrs. McAlpine, we rejoice that her belief in the promise of God in Psalm 73:24 is now fulfilled. ‘Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel and afterward receive me to glory.’ Her daily life gave evidence to the fact that she believed God’s Word and followed His guidance, seeking His leadership in all that she said and did. She was upright and loving and kind in all her ways – sincere and genuine in all her doings. She has left behind her a beautiful memory and we pray that young people may emulate her life.” 

The resolution expressed gratitude to God for the time Mrs. McAlpine was part of the church and community and expressed sympathy to her family.
