Faithful Alliance Servant Dies

Rev. Elwood A. Mann, a retired official worker who served in the Northeastern District for 43 years, passed away March 28, 2009. He was 86. Mann pastored six churches in the district from 1950-1987.

¬†“It seems the district is quickly losing pastors of Elwood’s generation, but their legacy and godly example of committed humility remains with us,” said District Superintendent Dan Miller. “They will be missed-Elwood will be missed.”

¬†Mann was predeceased by his wife, Elspeth, in 1985. He is survived by three children, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Two sisters, Edythe Dunning and Marilyn Martin, were able to join Mann’s family before his passing. “We prayed that God would grant him one more day until we could get there,” said Dunning. “God gave us that day with our brother.” Memorial services were held April 1 in Niagara Falls, New York, and gifts to the Great Commission Fund were accepted in lieu of flowers
