Bishop Hagiya’s Announcement Regarding Conference Staff Member

It is with extreme sadness that we let you know that our beloved sister Susan Bonaparte passed away this morning.

Susan faithfully served the California-Pacific Conference for many years, most recently as Accounting/Facilities Assistant in the Treasurer’s Office. Sunday, March 31, 2019 marks her 15th anniversary with the Conference.

We grieve with Susan’s family, her church, Pacoima First United Methodist Church, and all who have always looked to her for inspiration and strength. Please keep Susan’s daughters, Robyn and Barbara, and her grandson, Pharrell, in your prayers during this tender and difficult time.

May we as God’s servants find comfort and peace in Psalms 23 as sister Susan rests from her labors.

Bishop Grant J. Hagiya
Los Angeles Area Resident Bishop
