First Presidency, Local Community Honor Missionary Who Died in Argentina

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.
