Irene Orrick entered the presence of her Lord last night [Wednesday evening], 9 May, after a long illness.
She is the wife of Jim Orrick, one of our Directors and former pastor of Storms Creek Missionary Baptist Church in Ironton, Ohio.
She was a dear saint of God who knew, walked with, and fellowshipped with her Savior; a sweet personal friend; and a beloved sister in the Lord to all of us who knew her.
We rejoice in her healing and entrance into Glory – and continue to express our love and prayers to God for comfort and peace for Brother Orrick and their family.
Irene requested no public visitation or service. Rather, she instructed them to conduct a private graveside worship service where she will be interred to await the resurrection of her body.
Brother Orrick is inviting those who wish to attend the graveside service this Saturday, May 12 at 11:00 am at Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens, 2835 Flemingsburg Rd, Morehead [Rowan County] KY 40351. [Map] Phone number for the cemetery is 606.784.6491.
