Get To Know Our COHI Volunteers – Linda Francis

As a cradle Episcopalian, I have deep roots in the church. Recently, I needed to know the date of my great grandfather’s death for a genealogy search. I went to the church where I was baptized and found the information I needed. I still have that connection to my church roots in the city where I was born.

I have has been a member of Ascension since 1990. I have served the greater church on many levels: Dean of Region V, various diocesan committees, Cursillo leader and Council member, Youth Group leader, and a delegate to the annual convention for many years. I have worked in our church office five times. Because of those positions I have a connection to the greater church in Minnesota. The church is my family.

Serving at the altar is my favorite place to be. Training others to participate is a joy. I live in Stillwater with my husband David. We have four children and six grandchildren.
