'Well done my good and faithful servant'

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 by The Press in Local News

Those attending Shirley Lindgren's funeral at Bethlehem's First Presbyterian Church said the sunny day reflected her optimistic personality and her joy when telling a friend a few weeks ago, "Life is good." Speakers were upbeat. There was laughter, and, of course, tears for the woman who was allegedly beaten in her Wall Street home by her son Michael, 51, Aug 20.

At least 400 people were there Saturday as senior pastor the Rev. Dr. Alf E. Halvorson gave a moving homily. It was obviously clear that he knew Shirley and her husband, Ralph and their five children.
