We remember Louie Baldwin Rieman, former GWP steering committee member and life-long proponent of global relationship-building and a shared journey of empowerment.
Louie and her husband Phil were killed in a car accident on December 26, 2008. Their children, Ken, Tina and Cheri, as well as thousands in the Church of the Brethren and all walks of life, all around the world, are devastated by this loss. All who knew Phil and Louie are also inspired by the ways this couple met the world with hope and love.
Sister Stella, Organizer of SITEAW, Shifting Ideas Through Education for African Women, a GWP partner project in Uganda, wrote of Phil and Louie Baldwin Rieman, “Everyone of us had been touched by the deep love they shared. The challenge is on our side to keep that fire of love burning.”
