The Venerable Anne Germond writes:
Good morning everyone – please join me in sending our deepest sympathies and the assurance of our prayers to the Prebble family. Doug’s mother, Mrs. Doris Prebble, died peacefully yesterday morning. She had been ill for a long time and Doug has been visiting her frequently in the last little while. Doug and Wendy and their family will be travelling south tomorrow and Doug will be officiating at the funeral service on Wednesday afternoon at 3pm.
I spoke with Doug this morning and while he is sad, he is grateful for his mother, for her love of him and his family, for her faith, and for her long and beautiful life.
Further details on the service may be found here.
