LYNCHBURG, Va. (Christian Examiner) – Macel Pate Falwell, 82, who described herself as “a prim and proper lady who’d been raised in the arms of a protective Christian family” before marrying Jerry Falwell, has died.
The Falwells were married April 12, 1958, and were married for 49 years. The Rev. Jerry Falwell, founder of Thomas Road Baptist Church and Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, died in 2007. They are survived by two sons and a daughter: Jerry Falwell Jr., Jonathan Falwell, and Jeannie Falwell Savas — and their families.
A memorial page appears on the website of Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia today.
