In Loving Memory

Remembering Sam Gillis

Sam Gillis, Unity of Birmingham supporter and participant, made his transition on July 11, 2017. Brenda Durham will be conducting his memorial service on Saturday, July 15, 3 PM at Ridouts Valley Chapel on Oxmoor Road in Homewood.

His wife Sandra is a member of Unity of Birmingham and Co-Team Leader of the Art Team. 


Sandra Gillis, a. beloved Unity member, has asked that in lieu of flowers gifts be given to support Unity in Sam's memory. Sam loved the church and was a faithful congregant whose smile and warm presence brightened the day of each person he met.

If anyone has memories / stories they would like to share about Sam please send them to Beth Franklin at
We are building a memory book for Sandra.
