One reason Lucian and Jo-Ann began attending Plymouth was because Lucian’s son, David Guthrie, his wife Katherine and children Calvin and Lucinda are actively involved in our church community. Lucian grew up in Charlotte, NC. He received his Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering from Georgia Tech and received a Master’s in Structural Engineering from Vanderbilt University. He is retired from U.S. Corps of Engineers after 37 years and he and wife Jo-Ann reside in Redmond. Lucian enjoys dance, golf, gardening, leading disaster preparedness training and birdwatching.
When asked who has inspired him through the years, he said, “I’m inspired by my parents, my wife and grandchildren, friends and am especially fortunate to have encountered gifted teachers.” Lucian is interested in learning more about Plymouth activities where he can share his talents and passion.
Jo-Ann Guthrie grew up in Jacksonville, FL and has lived in Atlanta, GA, Nashville, TN and Alexandria, VA. She earned her associate degree for Paralegal at Northern Virginia University. Mother of David and Bryan Guthrie, Jo-Ann worked for AT&T legal department for many years and retired from The George Washington Masonic National Memorial.
“My discovery of Plymouth has been by way of my family, David, Katherine, Calvin and Lucinda.
I chose Plymouth as my church home because I have been particularly inspired by Plymouth’s leaders, both clergy and lay leaders. I am impressed that a Church that has played a vital part in the life of this City over many years has dared to seek out and find leaders like Kelle and Steven to bring renewal and help breathe new life to its membership. In all honesty, it’s been a while since I have been excited about belonging to the formal Church.”
Jo-Ann likes to garden, quilt, read, journal, dance, golf and travel.
“My inspirations have been of course, my parents, teachers, friends and authors such as Karen Armstrong, and Maya Angelou. More recently, I have been inspired by the young people of our country.
I hope to find those at Plymouth that share common interests and look for ways to give back to the community.”
