Susan Sochowski Family

At our request, Mark has put together a list of concrete and financial ways to help the family as they adjust to a new normal after Susan's stroke. As she continues to recover at home, Susan and the family can use everything from help cleaning the garage to supportive notes and cards to gift cards to help cover expenses.  

A list is available in the back of church. For more information, email stjohnlutheranruma@gmail.com.
