Honoring Humble Service

 
 
Joan Ecker On Tuesday, October 31st, Joan Ecker, Business Officer and Transition Assistant, officially retired from the Diocesan staff after 28 years of service. Joan served faithfully with three Diocesan bishops (Bishop Ball, Bishop Herzog, and Bishop Love) and one suffragan Bishop (Bishop Bena). She supported several accounting managers and treasurers. Joan was unfailingly courteous with all those she served, both Diocesan staff and the clergy, laity, and parishes of this Diocese, and sometimes others. She was concerned about even the smallest details, making sure that all that she did was complete and correct. She was not only an efficient clerk, but a compassionate friend to many both in the office and throughout the Diocese, handling requests from clergy and laity, from parish assessments to benefit decisions, with skill and compassion. Her meticulousness was humbly presented at each Diocesan Convention as she oversaw the Convention altar guild, preparing for two Eucharists in two days for over a thousand communicants each year.

Joan has served our Lord and His Church faithfully and has been an inspiration to all. Her impish smile and loving laugh will be missed around the lunch table and throughout the office. We know her retirement will continue to be a time of faithful service to our Lord, showing compassion and mercy and getting things just right wherever she serves. May Jesus Christ our Redeemer and Savior bless His faithful servant Joan with strength and perseverance always.
