Alum Bill Nelsen's son, Greg, wrote to share with us the news that his father  "graduated (as he liked to put it) to the next life" on November 2, 2011 at the age of 95. Bill lived a life full of energy and enthusiasm that was celebrated on November 5 at the Marion Presbyterian Church in Marion, KS.

A memorial has been established with the Westminster Woods Church Camp, which Bill had a major role in developing and supporting over the past 47 years. If you would like to send a memorial gift, it can be mailed to Zeiner Funeral Home, 205 Elm St., Marion, KS 66861.

Even as we send our condolences to the Nelsen family, we give thanks for the life, spirit and ministry of Bill Nelsen.
