Last week Wednesday on Oct. 31, 33-year-old Joshua Wooldridge, a 2004 alumnus of Pella Christian, died in a farming accident near Peoria, IA. In high school, Joshua was very involved in choir and band.  In 2006, he graduated from Muscatine Community College and became a farmer. Math teacher Larry Hessing recalls that Joshua was an industrious, kind young man. “I remember Josh as a quiet student who was a diligent worker,” he said.

Industrial Arts teacher Paul Monsma has similar memories. “He was a quiet young man with a great smile,” he said.

Memorial services were held Monday, Nov. 5 at the Sully Community Church. The PC community extends sympathy and prayers to his family and friends.
