"I had never tasted candied parsnips before, but after that first serving at Muriel’s house I could never get enough. Muriel Dresser and her husband Marston were members of the Shopiere United Methodist Church, a small, rural congregation near Beloit, Wisconsin, where I pastored from 1978 to 1982. The Dressers were retired farmers, then in their mid-70s. Both were hale and hearty, though Muriel suffered from a severely arthritic hip and walked with an awkward, rolling gait. But that never stopped her from attending church[,] doing her household chores[, or from becoming my friend and surrogate grandma].”
