Leadership

The heart and soul of our congregation are the individuals who serve as leadership, both on the Session (our governing board) and our Board of Deacons (members of Care Council).  Each person brings unique God given gifts that shape our ministry and mission.

  • Cherie Parsons, Elder

    "Some facts about me: I am a vegetarian who is passionate about environmental stewardship. I am a feminist raising two feminist daughters. I said yes to becoming an elder because this church has played an important role in my family’s life and it has fueled my daughters’ interest in social justice and provides them opportunities to serve and learn with others."

  • Grace Mawhorter, Deacon


  • Sally Mortimer, Deacon

    Being a Deacon has given me the good feeling of being helpful and connected, now that my children and grandchildren are grown and off in their busy lives.


    I have been a member of Fairmount since I was 13 and my husband and I were married in the Chapel 50 years ago. We have 3 daughters and sons-in-law, and 6 grandchildren ranging from age 20 to 20 months. I love reading, most anything, downhill skiing, swimming, gardening and traveling. I am interested in peoples' stories and history, and even though I have lived in Cleveland most of my life, I am ready to take off to see new or other places always.

  • Lee Sealfon Eckles, Deacon

    I starting to sing in the choir before I was even a member of Fairmount so I fully understand the call for commitment to service. Over 20 years ago I was a Deacon but was not able to complete my full term due to illness, so I accepted this current call to fulfill a term for another member.

  • Susan Kent, Deacon

    "Being a Deacon is what I hope I have come to do naturally in my everyday life. I became a grandmother last spring and welcoming this new baby into life where she knows she is never 'alone' is one of the greatest gifts we can give our family and friends."

  • Marlee Poitinger, Deacon

    Marlee Poitinger Gannon has been attending Fairmount with her husband, Grant, since January 2016. In her spare time, she loves cycling, cooking and spending time with her husband and their dog, Olive. Her favorite part of Fairmount is the mission-based work the church does and the progressive action that is taken to make our world and community a better place.

  • Bryan Seekely, Deacon


  • Joyce Tedrick, Deacon

    "From an early age, I was the most comfortable when taking care of people. In 1967, I started working at St Anthony hospital in Effingham, Illinois as a nurses' aide. I was told not to tell anyone how old I was (15 1/2) or how much I made ($1.11). I have been a nurse at Cleveland Clinic for 42 years. Being a part of Fairmount, has given me many opportunities to care for others."

  • Roger Williams, Deacon

    Up until very recently, I had been a College Textbook Publisher, having owned my own firm for 15 years. During the past 8 years I transitioned to a positioned as Medical Writer in the healthcare industry, first for Kaiser and then for 

    Metro Health. Born in the shadow of Mt. Hood, I was a bamboo rod fisherman by age 8 and a dry fly fisherman by age 15, having fished many of the great trout streams of the Pacific NW during the interim. My greatest accomplishment is having taught my wife, Valerie to fly fish, which she truly loves.
