Jay and Kathy Eaton provide this information regarding the artwork recently acquired for Plymouth Church.
After moving from Waukon, Iowa to Deerfield Retirement Community, Margaret Eaton became a member of Plymouth Church until her death.
Margaret supported many young children throughout her life, including teaching Sunday school, teaching reading in public school, mentoring children, and contributing time and financing to organizations that support young women and families in need.
The sculpture Epiphany, gifted through memorial funds from Margaret’s family and friends, honors Margaret and all who nurture the precious wonder and love in our children. Epiphany is installed on the brick wall in the south hallway on the second floor of the church.
Gary “Chris” Christopherson is a sculptor of abstract art, focused on “Thrive! Achieving health and well-being for people, communities and the world.” All proceeds from his art sales are donated for college scholarships. The plaque on the wall beside the sculpture would read: Honoring Margaret Holmes Eaton and all who nurture the precious wonder and love in our children.
