Memorial Service for Gov. Thornburgh
October 16, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Richard Lewis Thornburgh
“Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His faithful ones.” Psalm 116:15
A memorial service for Richard Lewis Thornburgh will occur on Sunday, October 16, at 3:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary of Shadyside Presbyterian Church, followed by a reception in the Parish Hall.
Dick passed peacefully from this life into the Church Triumphant on December 31, 2020. A public service celebrating his life had been planned previously and postponed due to the pandemic.
The late husband of beloved SPC member Ginny Thornburgh, Dick was a longtime friend of the congregation and worshiped among us regularly. He committed his life to the rule of law; service to his community, state, and nation; and devotion to his family. His public service career of twenty-five years included contributions as Governor of Pennsylvania, U.S. Attorney General, and Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations.
Please join us in giving thanks to God for Dick’s life of faith, and plan to attend this service of witness to the resurrection. Please also continue to pray for Ginny and the Thornburgh family.
