Immediate Funds Needed to Help a Grieving Family Cover Funeral Expenses after Sudden Death of Wife and Mother
$5,000 Needed to Proceed with Funeral Services
LCC received an urgent request from Pastor Duane Fluechtling from St. Paul Lutheran Church in Thornton, Illinois, for funeral expense assistance for a very active member who lost his wife suddenly and unexpectedly this week. She went to the emergency room with health concerns, had emergency surgery, and died several hours later of sepsis and organ failure.
This has been a shock and difficult loss to her husband, children, grandchildren, and congregation. The family does not have the means to pay for funeral expenses on their own. The church has helped with some of the cost, but the funeral home is postponing any services until they are paid $5,000, which will cover the balance owed.
If you are so moved, please donate generously to help LCC and St. Paul Lutheran Church assist this grieving family cover funeral expenses. Your prayers and support are greatly appreciated.
