James Talley, area pastor, supporter of Methodist shrine dies at 76 - Carroll County Times

Monday, February 20, 2017

In the early 1990s, Talley attended seminary, was ordained and became the pastor at Mount Zion United Methodist Church, in Finksburg, where he served for seven years. He served another seven years in the ministry at churches in Baltimore and Anne Arundel counties before retiring and purchasing a home on Wirt Road, not far from the corner from the Strawbridge Shrine.Marian Goettee, tour coordinator at the shrine, recalls how Talley would take advantage of his proximity to the shrine property to tend to it even in his retirement. She could always count on him, she said, to help out in leading an extra-large tour group and to keep up with smaller details as well."He was very conscious of what was going on there and was very conscientious about keeping the grounds in good condition," Goettee said. "He did a lot of work on the side that people didn't know about, like keeping high grass cut and keeping places mowed."It was about more than keeping busy, Goettee said."It was a very calming spot, and he just felt like it was hollowed ground," she said. "It was just a favorite part of his world."One of the last events of 2016 held at the Strawbridge Shrine was an Advent celebration, according to Shindle, who said Talley closed the event by thanking everyone for their work on the shrine property. If he seemed to know exactly what everyone had been doing, Shindle said, it was because he had been involved in every bit of it."No one will be able to carry on the enormous role that Jim played in the life of the Strawbridge Shrine," Shindle said. "He was really there every day, presided over the organization and made sure that everything was ship, shape and was a constant presence at the shrine ever since I was involved there. He will be greatly missed."Visitors will be welcomed 1 to 3 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 7, at the Hartzler Funeral Home, 310 Church St., New Windsor. A service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 8, at St. Paul United Methodist Church, 200 Main St., New Windsor.Memorial contributions can be made to Strawbridge Shrine Association Inc., 2200 St. Paul St., Baltimore, MD 21218.
