Ranger's Lutheran ties

Margaret Kritsch Anderson, 34, the park ranger shot in the line of duty in Washington state on Jan. 1, was a member of Bethany Lutheran Church, Spanaway, Wash.

Her father, Paul Kritsch, is pastor of Redeemer, a Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod congregation in Westfield, N.J. Kritsch Anderson was shot while trying to stop a gunman from entering Mount Rainer National Park.

Jayne M. Thompson, an ELCA campus pastor, filed a blog for The Lutheran on Jan. 2 about Kritsch Anderson's involvement in Lutheran Campus Ministry at Kansas State University in Manhattan.

A memorial service for Kritsch Anderson was held Jan. 10 at Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma, Wash.
