It is with a sad heart that I share with all of the Women of Providence readers that my roommate, Beverly Camper, one of our CDP associates, passed away on January 17 of fungal pneumonia. As many of you know, Bev had been through chemo and radiation treatments for a tumor in her lung and at the end of November was declared cancer free. We all felt she received a miracle! But her system was compromised and so she was not able to fight off this last disease.
Beverly was our WPC bookkeeper since 2012 so she was very familiar with the wonderful works of all our Providence congregations. We shared life in community for 27 years, with all that life together encompasses. She was an amazing woman who was kind, good, friendly, very generous, had a big heart and a beautiful, welcoming smile to all those she met.
On so many levels I will miss her. I believe she is now with our Provident God, who chose her, redeemed her, called her by name. Sharing love and friendship with her was and is a blessing in my life for which I am so grateful. Eternal rest grant to her, O Provident One, and may she rest in peace.
Sister Barbara McMullen, CDP
