Carla Cole was a much loved and now a sorely missed member of our Church, and she passed away June 5, 2018.  Carla was a sweetheart, good and kind.  She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother and she was predeceased by her husband.  She had a lively spirit, was fun, and loved to socialize at our Church.  God bless you, Carla!
