Dear people of God,
It is with sadness that we share the news that Connie Lyons, Judy Lyons’ mother, died Monday evening. Connie, her late husband Charles, and their daughter Judy have a long involvement in Good Shepherd. Indeed, they have lived around the corner from our church since 1948 and Charles even helped build both our rectory and sanctuary. Charles passed away last September, just days before their 72nd wedding anniversary. Judy, their only child, is and has been a regular at our 8 am Rite 1 service for decades. Connie was 93 years old.
Arrangements are as follows, and your prayers and presence are requested:
Friday, May 24
Clark Funeral Home, 2104 Saw Mill River Rd, Yorktown Heights, NY 10598
Saturday, May 25
Church of the Good Shepherd, 39 Granite Springs Road, Granite Springs, NY 10527
Burial immediately following the service
Amawalk Cemetery, 2445 Quaker Church Road, Yorktown Heights, New York 10598

Reception in our Parish Hall at Good Shepherd. All are invited.
Let us pray:
God our Creator, your grace gives life to all; receive Connie into your keeping and give her the new life promised through Jesus Christ our Savior, who once was dead and now lives with you and the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. Amen.
Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray, with all those who mourn; that, casting all their care on you, they may know the consolation of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
