Family and friends were assured Monday that Brittany Nicole Scadlock was continuing the work she started on her mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints only in a different realm.
The 19-year-old, who died March 11 of food poisoning while serving in the Argentina Resistencia Mission, was lauded as a faithful daughter of God and a righteous servant.

Elder Mervyn B. Arnold, a member of the LDS Church’s First Quorum of Seventy, also spoke at the funeral.
Arnold had served as the church’s area president in Argentina a short time ago.
“I could visualize her sitting on a mud floor, not worrying about it,” Arnold said.
He also read a letter from the First Presidency of the LDS Church expressing sorrow and a desire for the family to feel peace.
“We hope you will be able to derive some comfort in knowing that your dear daughter could not have been engaged in a more worthy service,” said the letter.
