Founded by Mildred Nicodemus in memory of her parents to support the general operations of the Church.
Lifelong community member Mildred Nicodemus found the ideal way to honor the memory of her parents by establishing The C. Raymond and Helen Crum Memorial Fund for Chapel Lutheran Church. The fund supports the general operations of Chapel Lutheran Church, a stand-alone church dedicated to the care and well-being of others. The church is also the final resting place for Mr. and Mrs. Crum, who attended the church together when they were first married. As farmers in the Frederick County area, Mr. and Mrs. Crum were valued members of the community and had a strong connection with the church. “Even after mother and dad started attending another church in Frederick, Chapel Lutheran remained close to their hearts and they always felt as if they were still a part of the congregation,” says Mrs. Nicodemus. “This new fund will help support Chapel Lutheran and I know my parents would be pleased.”
