Holmes Presbyterian Church honors woman who’s been a member for 90 years

RIDLEY TOWNSHIP >> Bertha Johnson Bullock celebrated her 103rd birthday on May 2 and the Holmes Presbyterian Church honored her Sunday as the only person in the church’s 108 year history to be a member for 90 years.
Seated in the sanctuary next to her friend, church deacon Debbie Lucas, Bullock was singled out by the pastor, Rev. William Carpenter, and presented with a certificate honoring her for nine decades of church membership. Lucas pinned a pink rosebud corsage on the blue jacket Bullock was wearing.
“Of all these 1,800 members (in the church history) she is the only one who has been a member for 90 years,” Carpenter said. “That
is some accomplishment. Most of us don’t make it to 90 years of age and to be a member of a church for 90 years ... We are grateful we can honor her today.”
