Two Deaths in the ApologetiX Family
Fri., Jan. 2. 2015 11:42am EST
We're sorry to report the passing of the mothers of two former band members this week:
Shirley Wise, the mother of former ApologetiX guitarist Karl Messner and mother-in-law of ApologetiX bass player Keith Haynie, died on December 30 after a long battle with cancer. She was 82. The news was not unexpected, and the family is grateful that she went peacefully and all three of her children (Lisa, Krista, and Karl) were there.
Betty Pakula, the mother of former ApologetiX drummer Jeff Pakula, passed away on December 29, surrounded by her family. She was 91, and her condition had been progressively worsening from dementia since being admitted to the hospital in November 2013.
Please the families of both ladies in your prayers.
