A wonderful model
By Joan Berquist, North Wisconsin LWML President
It has been my privilege and honor to work alongside our dear past district president, Becky Haltaufderheid. Becky has shared with us many of her admirable qualities, among them her gift of leadership, her love for the Lord, her gift of mentoring, and let’s not forget her sense of humor! An amazing woman of faith, we have all been touched by her dignity and grace as she led our district forward in missions.
Today, there are many women of the North Wisconsin District and in the past who have contributed selflessly and quietly to the missions set before us of telling others about Jesus. As we go about our daily tasks, we are in prayer for each other and for programs and for the Mission Grants that we are supporting with our Mites. We work together hand in hand to lead workshops, rallies, retreats, and conventions, our basic goal always is to tell others about Jesus.
Our members have been blessed to know Becky and walk beside her. We will continue to support the LWML and will carry with us the shining example that Becky has set before us, knowing that each of us is an integral part of our group and that we make a difference by what we do as sisters in Christ.
Our dear sister, Becky, was called home to the Lord on December 18. For her visitation and funeral arrangements, you will find the information at this site: https://www.schinderlefuneralhome.com/obituary/Rebecca-SmithHaltaufderheidOfficerBecky
