Dorothy Green was one of the saints of Grace Church and greatly beloved by all who knew her, including the many children she served as a church school teacher and as a bus driver (#66) for the Pemberton School District for many years.

A reception will follow hosted by church members.

The Grace Church Choir will offer two anthems. We invite children of our community who would like to join in the musical offering to come at 3:45 p.m. to rehearse with Catherine Sabin.

A Peace Pole is a hand-crafted monument that displays the message and prayer "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in various languages. The Grace Church pole has languages selected by Dorothy's family: English, Japanese, Gaelic/Irish, German, Latin, Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew, and brailleThere are tens of thousands of Peace Poles in 180 countries all over the world dedicated as monuments to peace. They serve as constant reminders for us to visualize and pray for world peace. Further
