Ralph Whedon

Baptized in 1949 (the first half of the last century) by Rev Dr. Wallace Suter, Custodian (of the 1928) Book of Common Prayer for whom my mother, Jane, was secretary.  I was confirmed at Christ Church, Elizabeth NJ.

We summered in Southern Maine from the age of 5; my mother packed Sunday clothes and arranged for us to attend Christ Church, Norway ME, while on vacation. My parents, Jane and Ralph, moved to Stillwater in 1970 and were members of St. John’s (Episcopal).  Lorna and I, graduated from college and 3 days later were,married at a Solemn High Mass at Christ Church.  The church building burned to the ground 4 years later due to a faulty boiler; the site is now a parking lot.

My education includes: CFI, A&I, SEL&S, BS, MBA,CPA, CISA, Certified K-8. We have lived in Savannah NY, Albany NY, Naperville IL, Mentor OH, Portland and Stillwater ME. Our Episcopal Churches  have supported our spiritual life, for Lorna, me and our two children, Debbie (44) and David (42) at  St Luke’s, Roselle NJ , St. Mark’s, Newark NY; St. Peter’s, Albany NY; St. John’s, Naperville IL; St. James, Painesville OH; St. Peter’s, Portland ME and at  St. John’s Episcopal Bangor where our daughter, Debbie, and Lucas, one of our five grandchildren, were baptized.

Lorna was Church Secretary for 10 years at St. John’s, Naperville.  I have participated in  parish life  including set-up and taker down for many rummage sales and Bishops’ luncheons, Sunday School Teacher, Vestry Member, Eucharistic Minister, Youth Choir Director, Finance Committee Chair, Capital Fund Campaign Chair, Treasurer, Head Acolyte, and Choir Member.  If elected, I look forward to serving the parish to support the mission of St. John’s.
