Lois Becker, Custodian
Lois Becker started taking care of our beautiful church shortly after she became a member of Bethany in 1980. She says her favorite part about working at Bethany are the friendly members. When Lois isn't busy looking after the church building and the grounds she finds time to volunteer herself and her husband, Bob, for Meals on Wheels or one of the other mission works at the church. If there is an event or mission project going on at Bethany, you're almost sure to see them helping out.
For a quick get away, Lois and Bob like to head out on their Gold Wing bikes for dinner in Sioux Falls or some other quick adventure.
Once you meet Lois, either in town or at the church, you'll be friends forever. She's just that way!

Mary Ann Quail, Secretary
Mary Ann Quail is a life-long Lutheran, baptized into the faith on December 18, 1960. She has served as parish secretary at Bethany Lutheran Church since 2005. Over this time, Mary Ann has found Bethany to be an amazing place, full of His grace. She is grateful for the incredible support of the congregational members and feels Bethany is a warm and welcoming place.
Mary Ann studied accounting at Spencer School of Business and after several years of work in the public and private sector, decided to change course by accepting the position at Bethany. Juggling the many responsibilities of a parish secretary is a trick in itself. Mary Ann applauds the terrific volunteers that help her get the work done. (without dropping a ball!)
Mary Ann is married and has two children. In her spare time she enjoys the company of family and friends, hiking, biking, reading and playing "Words with Friends".
Drop in anytime and meet Mary Ann Quail. She is the friendliest, warmest and helpful juggler you will ever meet!
