Isabel Carrie (Lewis) Stiles passed away at her home in Chula Vista, Calif., Sept. 5, 2000. Isabel was born Aug. 23, 1911, to Leon E. Lewis and Edith Belle Hitchins Lewis in Morgan, Utah. She married Carlton William Stiles, also of Morgan, March 8, 1934. Carlton preceded Isabel in death Aug. 12, 1990. Isabel and Carlton were baptized in 1953 while living in Phoenix, Ariz., by a visiting baptizing team of ministers from the then Radio Church of God. Isabel and Carlton were dedicated members of the Church of God from that time. Graveside services were conducted Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. by Dr. Roderick Meredith in the La Vista Memorial Park, National City, Calif. Isabel now rests beside her devoted husband, Carlton, awaiting the Resurrection at the return of Jesus Christ.

Lucy Barnes died the Sabbath of Jan. 27 at 3:45 p.m. from complications of pneumonia. She was 77. She was flown back to Houston for the funeral. Lucy had moved to Missouri eight months before she died to be closer to her sister and her family. Friends had a special farewell reception for her to honor her many years of devoted service to the church as well as her wonderful example as a Christian woman. Though she had had several difficult health situations since the move, she was able to return to Corpus Christi, Texas, for the Feast, where many of her Houston friends enjoyed a wonderful Feast with her. Thanks to Mike and Carol Blackwell for the many hours of comfort and encouragement they extended to her over the final several weeks. Mrs. Barnes was Brian Knowles' secretary for several years. She was also Mr. Armstrong's for a couple of years.
