Multnomah Biblical Seminary alumna and beloved faculty member, Virginia Adduci went home to the Lord on December 27, 2003.
Mrs. Adduci earned her master of arts in pastoral studies at the Seminary in 1998 and served on the Multnomah faculty from 1999 to 2000. She was the first full-time woman faculty member for the Seminary, and taught in the area of women's ministry.
According to Dr. Don Brake, president and dean of Multnomah Biblical Seminary, Gini's spirit of enthusiasm infected the halls of the Seminary.
"Her gifts of teaching, encouraging, and mentoring were evident to all," Brake said. "Her resignation due to illness was received with great sadness of heart. We will miss Gini, her ever pleasant smile and her words of joy and comfort."
Mrs. Aducci was 51 as the time of her death. A memorial service was held for her at Central Bible Church on December 31. Memorial contributions may be made to Multnomah Biblical Seminary, 8435 NE Glisan St, Portland, OR 97220; or Hospice Southwest, P.O. Box 1600, Vancouver, WA 98668.
