With sorrow for our earthly loss yet with sure resurrection hope, we share with you that Sarah G. Monk (Sallie) was received into the Church Triumphant on Saturday, July 3, 2021. Sallie was a pillar of the Edgewood congregation, having served in many leadership and staff positions over the past 40 years. She was a Sunday School teacher and superintendent, youth director, moderator of Presbyterian Women, deacon for numerous terms, bible study leader, and congregational visitor among others. Her faith was strong and her kindness unending. Her loss will be felt by many, but we take comfort in the knowledge that she is with the Lord that she so loved.
