Ralph Whedon – Jr. Warden

I was baptized in 1949 and later confirmed at Christ Church, Elizabeth NJ.

My parents, Jane and Ralph, had been members of St. John’s from 1970 until they died.  Lorna and I, were married at Christ Church which later burned to the ground due to a faulty boiler; the site is now a parking lot.

Our Episcopal Churches have supported our spiritual life, for Lorna, me and our two children, Debbie now (50) and David (48) at 8 parishes. Debbie, and Lucas, one of our five grandchildren, were baptized at St. John’s.

Baptized in 1949 (the first half of the last century) by Rev Dr. Wallace Suter, Custodian (of the 1928) Book of Common Prayer for whom my mother, Jane, was secretary.  I was confirmed at Christ Church, Elizabeth NJ.

We summered in Southern Maine from the age of 5; my mother packed Sunday clothes and arranged for us to attend Christ Church, Norway ME, while on vacation. My parents, Jane and Ralph, moved to Stillwater in 1970 and were members of St. John’s (Episcopal).  Lorna and I, graduated from college and 3 days later were married at a Solemn High Mass at Christ Church.  The church building burned to the ground 4 years later due to a faulty boiler; the site is now a parking lot.

My education includes: CFI, A&I, SEL&S, BS, MBA,CPA, CISA, Certified K-8. We have lived in Savannah NY, Albany NY, Naperville IL, Mentor OH, Portland and Stillwater ME. Our Episcopal Churches  have supported our spiritual life, for Lorna, me and our two children, Debbie (49) and David (47) at  St Luke’s, Roselle NJ , St. Mark’s, Newark NY; St. Peter’s, Albany NY; St. John’s, Naperville IL; St. James, Painesville OH; St. Peter’s, Portland ME and at  St. John’s Episcopal Bangor where our daughter, Debbie, and Lucas, one of our five grandchildren, were baptized.
