Shirley comes to us from Lutheran Church of Framingham. She first came to Peace because of her friendship with our dear Milly Engberg. They have made quilts for Lutheran World Relief for many years. The Metrowest Lutheran quilting group sends 80-90 quilts two times a year all over the world.
She has four children, twelve grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. She and her husband Charlie were married for over fifty years. They enjoyed traveling to the Southwest. She treasures all things southwest and collects southwestern art.
Shirley’s name is Greek thanks to her husband, but she is of Swedish origin, and Swedish collectibles adorn her house.
Shirley said that she has been rejuvenated since coming to Peace. It is with great pleasure that we welcome her.

John comes to us by transfer from the Lutheran Church of Framingham. Originally from outside of Detroit, even though he has lived many places–Illinois, Texas, Delaware, Connecticut, and now Framingham—he considers himself a Michigander..
John and his wife, Pam, have 5 adult children who live across the U.S.
John has a Ph.D. in chemical engineering and works as a pharmaceutical scientist at Vertex Pharmaceuticals. He loves bicycling and bike tours. He and his wife have taken bike tours in Italy, France, and the Czech Repulic. A little known fact about John is that he is a struggling ballroom dancer.
Raised a Presbyterian, John joined the Lutheran Church because his first wife’s father was a pastor in the Missouri Synod Church. He has been a Lutheran ever since. We are happy to welcome him to our church home. Welcome John!
