My sincere condolences to the entire Mowrey Family! Jim & Thelma both had an impact upon my life. As a son of the Kane District, they helped to shape the early course of my candidacy for ordained ministry. I was a pastor on the Johnstown District when they moved to Arbutus. Their support for my ministry continued in that setting. I remember first seeing them in 1977, when they arrived at Camp Allegheny to retrieve Becky in the midst of the Johnstown Flood. Later, I would hear of their great work during that difficult time. Their faithfulness inspires me to this day. May their memory be a blessing to you all!

Dear Mowrey Family, we share fond memories of your parents. When we were a young clergy couple, they were setting the way forward for those of us, more in number, to come. They set an example of grace-filled ministry and supportive spousal relationship. They gave us encouragement and care. We remember them, as so many do, as dear friends. Our prayers for you all as you grieve losing him but celebrate his receiving his eternal reward and this long awaited reunion of your dear parents.

I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. My first appointment out of seminary was as associate pastor to Bradford First when Jim and Thelma were retiring. Grateful for their Christ honoring ministry. It was fun in Bradford to minister alongside Becky in the congregation there. Please know your family is being lifted in prayer. I can only imagine the reception Jim received when reaching heaven. I am sure our Savior said, "Well done, good and faithful servant!"
