It is with great sadness I send this message; Rev. Jean Russo-Parks, pastor of Wesley UMC in Lincoln RI passed on Tuesday morning, October 4th. Here is a copy of the message posted by her husband Paul on her care page this morning, The lord has finally taken Jean Home. She passed this morning around 3:30 AM. The people at Hospice said it was one of the most beautiful passing they have ever seen. She looked beautiful and at peace. I once again thank you all for your wonderful prayers, during this difficult time. They have truly been felt by us all. I will post the funeral arrangements as soon as I make them. I know the church will be the Old South United Methodist Church in Reading MA. and the wake will be here in RI. Bellows/Falso Funeral home of Lincoln RI will be handling the funeral arrangements. You can check with them for the details. God bless you all! And Thank you! Paul Parks Jr. May God’s peace surround Paul, their children, family and friends as we continue to keep them in our prayers.
