Mathilda Chase – better know among her friends and colleagues as Tillie, is an honorably retired Presbyterian Minister.  Prior to being a minister, Tillie worked for 20 years as an International Banker specializing in Information Technology.  Now that she is retired she spends her days writing a book about her ancestor who was a missionary in 1826, throwing pottery on her own kick wheel, working for the Iona Community of Scotland in the US, knitting, working as a Spiritual Director, , and traveling with her husband Jamie.  Retirement has freed Tillie up to do the things she loves to do, but there still isn’t enough time in the day to do it all!
