Funeral Arrangements – Beth Purcell

May 15th, 2023 – Post #82

We plan to have services for my mom in both Missouri and Indiana.

The St. Louis service will be held this coming Wednesday, May 17th, 2023 at Kirkwood United Methodist, located at 201 West Adams Ave, Kirkwood, MO 63122.

Bopp Chapel will be handling the arrangements.

There will be a visitation and viewing from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m., with a funeral service from 11 a.m. until noon. We will be serving a light lunch at noon for anyone who would like to stay and visit.

Grandstaff-Hentgen will be handling the arrangements for the Indiana services.

We have not finalized plans for the visitation, service, and burial in Wabash; but that will most likely take place the following week.

I will continue to update this site, as we solidify plans. I apologize, if I have not responded to calls, texts, or comments – it’s been kind of a whirlwind. Thank you for your patience and all the care you have shown. Love, Jody

I'm not sure what to say here: I once got second place in a dog-look-alike-contest? I know how to fold a fitted sheet? I'm pretty much a poster child for social backwardness - at least as far as social media is concerned; but I have some stories I think I'm supposed to share and am attempting to do that here, in this space.
