A 20-year-old Seattle-area woman who was serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has died.

“We are deeply saddened to share news of the passing of a young missionary,” he said.
“Sister Maw had been serving as a missionary in the Philippines Angeles Mission since June 2022,” Penrod added. “We express our love and sincere condolences to Sister Maw’s family, friends and the missionaries she was serving alongside. We pray they will each feel the peace and comfort of the Savior as they mourn her passing and honor her faithful missionary service.”
