Roberta (Bobbie) Grimm

Bobbie Grimm, wife of the late Rev. Robert Grimm, and member of Plymouth Congregational Church in Syracuse, died the morning of Oct. 3, 2017. Throughout her life, in various communities that included Syracuse and Buffalo, she and Bob nurtured ecumenical and interfaith relationships. She was an unceasing advocate for the arts and offered her gifts and passion for the liturgical arts in many settings. The Grimms were staunch, long-standing supporters of the New York Conference. A special gift of a stained glass window has been part of the chapel in the Amistad Center for years.

a letter (to Bob Grimm)
remembering Georg Gerson Iggers Dec. 7, 1926 - Nov. 26, 2017

The local NAACP said of him: Georg Iggers was a good man. He was a devoted husband, and father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a respected scholar in the field of historiography. He looked after his students and former students, always doing what he could to help them in their work and careers. Having experienced anti-Semitism as a child in Nazi Germany, he was engaged in civil rights advocacy from the time he was a teenager to the end of his life. He was the chief behind the scenes driver of the integration of Little Rock Central High School. He was a bridge builder, working to connect scholars on both sides of divided Germany, and around the world.

Jim Tompkins

A superlative craftsman and builder devoted to peace, with a loving and caring family and community--what more may any of us wish? Jim served as sexton (and more) at Riverside-Salem for many decades, taking care not only of our buildings but helping assure our continuous witness for Creation care, justice, and peace. And he kept our personal houses/homes safe and sound, too. He was a person who both gave and received respect and loving kindness. What an honor and a pleasure to try to carry on in his spirit!
