- Mourning the Loss of a Dear Friend, Board Member Joan Butler
Dear Life School Family,
It is with sadness that I inform you that Life School Board Member and treasured friend Joan Butler passed away on Saturday morning, June 18. Joan was appointed to the Life School Board of Directors in 2021 and was a longtime supporter of Life School. Joan and her husband, Gordon Butler Sr., served on the pastoral staff of Oak Cliff Assembly of God when Life School was established in 1998.
Joan was retired from a long career in finance and administrative support, most recently with Southwestern Assemblies of God University. She also served on the SAGU Board of Regents.
We will miss Mrs. Butler’s wisdom and heart for Life School.
Visitation will take place at Jeter and Son Funeral Home at 332 Cedar St. Cedar Hill, TX, 75104, from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM on Monday, June 27th. The Celebration of Life Service will be held at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, June 28, at Crossroads of Life Assembly of God at 123 W. Hwy 67 Duncanville, TX 75137.
Thank you for joining in our sympathy for her family.

Teachers had to learn to engage students online, not just in the classroom. Parents became part-time teachers and tutors.
