Nesbitt Remembered For Faith, Compassion At Memorial Service
Grace College student Bethany Nesbitt has been remembered for her faith and compassion.
The college held a memorial service for Nesbitt on Thursday, Nov. 5, at the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center on campus after she was found dead in her dorm room at Westminster Hall on Friday, Oct. 30.
An autopsy found that Nesbitt, 20, died of a pulmonary embolism (blood clot). The COVID-19 she was suffering from also contributed to her death.
Speakers at Thursday’s service at the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center included Grace President Dr. Bill Katip, Dean of Chapel Brent Mencarelli and several students.
“This is a time of sadness for us, but our sadness is not without hope,” said Katip. “Bethany was a precious gift from God. The Lord is not far from us as we face this sudden loss. He’s here; He’s with us right here. And as we speak, Bethany is now in the presence of her Savior. She’s in the presence of a living God.”
Katip talked about how Bethany visited with people in nursing homes through the ministry she led called Old School Cafe. She also worked in an after-school Bible club called Sisters Mentoring with a Mission, helping first and second-grade girls.
