Dolores W. Mirly, 90, joined her beloved husband in heaven and is now before the throne of God. She went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, October 3, 2012.

Mrs. Mirly was born on December 8, 1921 in Concordia, Missouri. It was there that she met her future husband who was a student at St. Paul College, a preparatory school for his calling to the Lutheran ministry. They were married in Concordia in 1945 after he completed his training in St. Louis. His first parish was in Jacob, Illinois where their first daughter, Martha, was born. After serving another Illinois parish, they moved to Philadelphia where their daughter, Rebecca, was born. In 1968 they moved to Charlotte where Pastor Mirly served as senior pastor at Resurrection Lutheran Church for more than 16 years. Mrs. Mirly was an active support for her husband in his ministry and was particularly interested in establishing altar guilds in their congregations. She was called with him into their post-retirement apostolic traveling ministry where they become known as leaders in the Lutheran and Liturgical/Charismatic Worship Renewal.

Mrs. Mirly is survived by her two daughters, Martha Budding (David) and Rebecca Barnwell (Marcus); her grandchildren, Jeffrey Berndt (Kristin), Nathan Berndt (Malka), Jessica Costen (Jade), Elisha Boggs (George), and Micah Swett (Maria); and 14 great-grandchildren.
