Valerie Armstrong

November 15, 1932 - January 16, 2017 (84)


WE WHO ARE associated with UK Bible Students are deeply saddened by the death of our Sister in the faith, Valerie Armstrong. She was a founding member of the website group in 2008, serving as a senior editor and writer. She contributed many original articles, usually without attribution, but occasionally as ‘Lee Bridges’ and ‘Joss Apperley’. Possessing a first-class mind, her writing style was a model of clarity and spiritual insight.


A Bible Student for most of her life, Valerie was very much involved in the activities of the wider fellowship at all levels, and was a looked-for face at local class meetings and general conventions, here in Britain and abroad. Along with her husband, Ronald E. Armstrong (who died in 1995), she exemplified that gift of saintly hospitality which the Scriptures commend, and together they entertained many angels unawares (Heb. 13:2).


To all those who miss Sr. Valerie as we do, we send our condolences and greetings. Together, may we look forward with joy to the promised resurrection in Christ’s kingdom, and the obliteration of death and dying.
