Jolene Richardson - Parish Administrator

Jolene Richardson, a native Iowan, has been a member of St. Andrew Lutheran Church since moving to Franklin in January 1990. Jolene is married to Mike Richardson and they have 2  daughters, Nicki, Michele, son-in-law, Yohei Koinuma, and granddaughter, Iris.  In July 2006, Jolene became the Parish Administrator at St. Andrew which has been a natural fit for her. Jolene has served on most every committee at St. Andrew, including council from May 2001 as vice president and from 2003-05, as congregational President, during the transition period after Pastor Eric Pearson retired and with Pastor Howard Mettee as interim Pastor. Jolene served as chair of the Building Committee from 2006-2010 for the new church expansion which included the new nave and narthex areas.  She currently serves on the Council as Administration and Property Chair, the Columbarium and Meditation Garden Committee, on the Nurture Committee/Health Ministry Team as a home visitor and Home Eucharist minister, an Assisting Minister in worship, the Finance Committee, and advisor/support for other ministries of St. Andrew.  In her spare time, Jolene likes to spend time with her sweet Havanese, Lucky Clover Lulu, her family, sewing, gardening, and likes to travel when time permits.
