Gretchen Naugle

The family and friends of the Naugle family are devastated by the loss of Gretchen Naugle. She passed away after a long but faith-filled battle with cancer on Monday, December 4, 2023. She is survived by Lukas, Brigitta (23), Natalia (21), Analina (18), Francesca (16) and many others who dearly love Gretchen.

Many people have walked alongside the Naugles in this brutal and beautiful journey. Now, a few of us friends are asking you to consider helping the family—your prayers and financial support would mean so much to the Naugles. Any expression of generosity would be welcomed. The funds will be used to cover medical and memorial expenses, counseling and therapy for the family, and to contribute to the Naugle girls’ education.

Gretchen was a steady and hardworking person. So much so that Gretchen was working right up until the time of her death to help provide for the family and her beautiful daughters’ college funds.

Gretchen was always kind and present to others. She always offered a deep and genuine smile and listened well. She was a person of peace in every room she graced.

And Gretchen was a lover of Jesus. She built her life—in good times and in facing cancer—on the reality of her belief that she would see Jesus face to face. She is now with her Risen Savior, who has conquered death. We firmly believe that to be true and encourage each other with these words (see 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

Thank you for considering contributing as generously as you’re able. I know from personal experience how much it meant to me and my family to be supported when my wife, Jill Kinnaman, passed away in 2020. It kept us going in more ways than mere dollars; it felt as though we were held up and held together by our friends and family.

Thank you so much.

Friends of Gretchen,

David Kinnaman
