Announcement on Leanne Nakanishi, Conference Secretary

Brothers and sisters,

It is with sadness that I inform you that our beloved sister Leanne Nakanishi, California-Pacific Conference Secretary, died this morning.

Leanne had been struggling recently with serious health challenges. Nevertheless, she was active until her final moments as our First Elected Lay Delegate to General Conference, as our Secretary of the Western Jurisdiction, as our Conference Secretary, as well as a member of Westwood United Methodist Church.

Information on services in her honor will be shared as it becomes available.

Let us keep her family and loved ones in our prayers.

Absent from the body…

Los Angeles Area Resident Bishop
