Bishop Fabney Smith and Mary Ellen Smith

It is with great sorrow and grief that Bishop Dabney Smith and the Smith Family announce the death of Mary Ellen Smith, Tuesday March 20, 2012.  A funeral liturgy was held in her honor on March 31 at the Cathedral Church of St. Peter's in St. Petersburg.

Mary Ellen and Bishop Dabney Smith are long time friends with Ning & Fr. Ray.  This is a profound loss for our Bishop and a deeply sorrowful loss for all that knew Mary Ellen. 

The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, recalled her peaceful nature, saying Mary Ellen was a "blessed and loving presence wherever she went, and she will be deeply missed."

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.
