Gwen C. Coniker
September 27, 1939 - June 15, 2002

Dear Family Apostolate Members and Friends,

It is with profound sadness that we inform you of the passing away of our beloved co-founder, Gwen Coniker, affectionately known as Mama "C", this morning at 5:30 a.m. during the Last Rites.  Her passing into eternal life was very peaceful with her devoted husband, Jerry, and most of her twelve children at her bedside.  We are all saddened by this loss, but we are also filled with joy because of our hope in the resurrection on the last day.  

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy we have been born anew to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and to an inheritance which is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you... (1 Peter 1:3-4).

All for the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, all through the Sorrowful & Immaculate Heart of Mary, all in union with St. Joseph,

Family Apostolate Staff and Catholic Corps
