Miriam Uphouse Honored

Aug 4, 2004

Miriam McKeefery Uphouse was honored last week at the Kosciusko (IN) County Fair in the “Our Lady of Kosciusko” event. Mrs. Uphouse, 86, received the award for her accomplishments and involvement in family, community, world and church activities. She was Associate Dean of Students at Grace College from 1964-1984 and, after the death of her husband, Norman, served with Grace Brethren International Missions for a year in Brazil and for nearly nine years in the Central African Republic before being forced to evacuate as a result of civil strife in the country. She currently serves as a volunteer pianist at Grace Village Retirement Center, as a receptionist at GBIM, and is an assistant adult Sunday School teacher and member of the Care Commission of the Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church. This Thanksgiving (2004) she plans to marry a long-time acquaintance from her students days at Philadelphia College of the Bible. A full feature story on her will appear in the November/December 2004 issue of FGBC World. Posted by Hello
