Deepest Condolences to Dennis Findley


Before he withdrew from the race on February 26, 2010, Dennis Findley was a candidate for the Democratic nomination in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. I had a chance to meet Dennis and talk to him on several occasions, and there’s no doubt that he is a class act all the way. Today, unfortunately, we received very sad news about Dennis’ wife, Bonnie. I just wanted to convey my deepest condolences to Dennis and his family on this tragedy.

To Dear Friends of Bonnie Barit and Dennis Findley,

With great sadness we share with you that Bonnie Barit, wife of Dennis Findley, mother of Tillman and Stirling, and faithful Franciscan, died suddenly on Monday, May 10 at their home in McLean.

In accordance with ancient church tradition Bonnie’s casket will be brought to the church on Sunday evening, where the family will receive visitors from 6 to 8 pm. On Monday May 17 at 11 am we will celebrate a choral Requiem Eucharist, to be followed by a reception in Millen Hall. Interment will take place later in the day, attended by family and close friends.

Further details about memorial donations will follow. Please keep Dennis, Tillman, Stirling, and Bonnie’s mother Mickey in your prayers in this very difficult time.

If you can help with hospitality on Sunday evening or Monday please contact the parish office.

fc[Rest eternal grant unto her, O Lord, and let light light perpetual shine upon her.
