Church Triumphant
With deep sadness we share that Mrs. Inez Rudisill joined the Church Triumphant on April 21, 2020. Inez joined Avondale church in 1991. A private family graveside service and burial was held in Asheville and a memorial service will be held in Charlotte at a later date. Read her obituary here.
Since we don’t know when life will fully return to “normal," we want to share some ideas for keeping people connected and engaged - plus share info on cyberscams that present dangers as we spend more time online.
