After the worship service, there will be a time of visitation with the family while enjoying refreshments provided by the church. Cliff and Eva were very active members of St. Paul UMC for many years until their health would not allow. Cliff was very instrumental in the planning and preparation of our memorial garden. After the visitation, there will be a private interment of Cliff’s and Eva’s ashes in the garden.
