It is with great sadness I let you know that Rev. Mark Follansbee, died July 19. Mark was ordained in 1953 and he was the minister at Bethany, Montpelier from 1973-1986. Mark was among the founders of Vermont Interfaith Action.

Mark is survived by his wife, Marylou Crooks; her children, Merriam Rink and Curtis Crooks, and their children; and his sons, Mark Alston-Follansbee, David Follansbee and Peter Follansbee; nine grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.

A memorial service at College Street Congregational Church (UCC) will be held at a later date.

Please keep the Follansbee-Crooks family in your thoughts and prayers.
