Former member of island church dies

Last May I sent a birthday card to my friend Barbara Hull who has lived in Tucson, Ariz., with her husband Bud for many years. Barbara and Bud were active members of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church and had many friends in Jamestown.

I received a letter on Saturday from their son informing me that Barbara had passed away on May 27, the day after her birthday. I knew she was not doing well but her passing made me sad.

Her son, Tom, also asked me to pass along this news to any friends she may still have here in Jamestown and also at St. Matthew’s Church. My memory isn’t good and I can’t remember if Bud preceded her in death. I couldn’t reach any family or friends who knew that information.
