Remembering Ellen Tharp

  • Date: Tuesday, July 14, 2020
  • Time: 7:00pm8:00pm
  • Location: Zoom Online Meeting

Ellen Estelle Jones Tharp died on Friday, July 3rd at the age of 100, in Charlottesville, VA.

Ellen first joined Catonsville Presbyterian Church with her husband Nelson in 1945 and were active leaders in the life of the congregation. Her obituary, linked here https://www.forevermissed.com/ellen-estellejones-tharp/about, highlights some of many ways that Ellen, a tireless advocate for peacemaking and social justice, made a lasting difference in the church, the community, and the wider world.

We will host a Zoom Remembrance for Ellen on Tuesday, July 14, 2020, at 7:00 PM. This will be a time for us to share remembrances and offer prayer.

When it is safe for us to be together in the sanctuary, there will be a memorial service for both Ellen and Nelson (who died earlier this year in January).

In lieu of flowers, gifts in Ellen’s memory may be given to the Grace Mission Fund of Catonsville Presbyterian Church.

Please keep Ellen’s entire family in your prayers during this time.

Well done, thou good and faithful servant.
Enter into the joy of your Lord.
