My sweet mother in law, Janet, went to be with Jesus this morning peacefully in her sleep after a courageous battle with Ovarian cancer. While our family is filled with tremendous grief we also have a peace knowing that she is rejoicing in the Lord's throne room right this very minute.
We wanted to let everyone know that the arrangements have been finalized for Janet's funeral.
visitation will be Sunday night (12/29) from 4-7 pm and the funeral
will be Monday (12/30) at 10 am. Both are being held at First Baptist
Church in Bentonville at 200 SW "A" Street, Bentonville, AR 72712
our out of town friends and family, arrangements have been made at the
TownePlace Suites in Bentonville for a rate of $59/night good for Friday
through Monday nights. To reserve a room at this rate please contact
them at 479-621-0202 and let them know you are wanting to reserve a room
for Janet Pate's funeral for the rate of $59. Their address is 3100 SE

In lieu of flowers we are strongly encouraging support towards Janet's
Memorial Fund. This fund will continue her legacy of investing in
student's lives and her desire for them to know and serve The Lord.
The donations received to this memorial will be designated for the youth
ministry of FBC Bentonville where Janet served for the last 12 years.
The gifts will be used to scholarship students desiring to attend
church camp and will also be used for future student ministry building
