I am best known at our church as the husband of Janet Roumpz, my wife of many years. We graduated from Berkley High School, Berkley, Michigan. I then went on to General Motors Institute, a five year engineering school. We have two children: our daughter Cheryl and her family, Joe, Steven and Allison, all known to our church, also our son, Brian and his family, Catherine, Caroline and Charlotte who live in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania. All of the above are one of my life’s greatest pleasures. After graduation I worked for Pontiac Motor Division and we were transferred to Jacksonville, Florida’s Zone Office. We were later transferred several times, including two more jobs in Florida. My last job with General Motors was Zone Manager for the central third of the country. We retired and knew exactly where we wanted to go. We arrived in The Springs, Longwood, Florida in 1999. We joined Maitland Presbyterian Church in 2008 and have formed many wonderful friendships here. We have also enjoyed continuing our growth in Christ with our fellow congregants and support and leadership from our wonderful pastors. I joined a Small Group shortly after coming to our church and still enjoy our two meetings per month. I served as lead for the Deacons in the first three year of its beginning. I became an Elder and thoroughly enjoyed that experience. I have helped Hospitality with bringing my muscles to bear when they were needed.
I was born in Tampa and have been a lifelong Presbyterian. I have been in the Maitland area for the last 10 years. My husband, Kenne, and I met serving on a committee together in the church I grew up at and we have continued to serve together in various capacities. Our family joined Maitland Presbyterian a little over a year ago and I am excited to become involved more deeply in the ministry of this amazing place. I am currently in the process of becoming a mental health counselor.
I was born in North Dakota but moved around the country quite a bit as a child before my parents settled in Central Florida about 30 years. My wife Amy and I started dating in high school (Lake Brantley) and have been married for nearly 24 years. We have a 16-year old son, Josh (who thinks he’s taller than me), and a hyperactive Vizsla named Josie. We have been members of Maitland Pres since 2017. I work as an in-house attorney with Siemens Energy.
Mary and her husband Bob moved from Western Kentucky to Winter Pk. Fl. 1972 with their dog Snoopy. Mary has been a member of Maitland Pres. since Oct. 8th,1972. Mary's most recent work experience has been as Licensed Practical Nurse, Certified Activity Director & she retired in 2006. She continues to love helping Senior Citizens that are her friends & members of the church. She was a member of MPC's Sam Robins Sunday School class for 35 years & is now a member of the Adult New Life Sunday Class since 2007. She has participated in the Women of the Church activities in various ways, volunteered as a Shepherd for visitation of the ill, and enjoyed fellowship with the Quilting & Sewing group. She has assisted with being an usher on Sunday mornings. She organized the church entrance greeters for each worship service for many years. Presently she enjoys volunteering @ MPC reception office every Thursday morning & counting the church offerings every three months with other volunteers. Mary feels MPC is her family & has always found the church to be warm & welcoming and supportive through all these 51 years.
I was born in London, England to an English war bride and an American soldier. When I was nine months old, my mother and I came to the United States via a ship with many other war brides and children. We landed in New York and went by rail to West Virginia where my American grandmother, dad and other relatives were waiting for us. I grew up outside Charleston, West Virginia. Florida has been my home for most of my adult life. I first lived in Titusville from 1968 through 1972. I then lived in Ohio from 1972 until 1975. I moved back to Florida early 1975 and have lived here since. I have lived in Longwood, Lake Mary, Tampa, Orlando, and Winter Park. My three daughters (Beth, Mary Margaret and Heather) attended elementary and middle school in Longwood and Lake Mary high school. I have six grandchildren; Michal Anna, Ryan, Megan, Olivia, Kendall and Connor. My education includes a BS degree in Psychology from UCF, a master’s level in Experimental Psychology from USF in Tampa, a master’s degree in Human Engineering/Ergonomics from UCF. After graduating with my master’s degree, I worked as a Usability Engineer for a banking software company. After two years Iobtained a position in the Industrial Engineering Department at UCF as a Research Associate. I continued taking classes toward the doctorate until my husband became ill and required more of my time. Over the years I have attended either a Presbyterian Church (USA and PCA) or a Methodist Church. Six years ago I attended my first service at Maitland Presbyterian Church and Megan was preaching. It was “happenstance” to attend MPC, since I was a member of another church but had overslept that morning. I became a member the first opportunity a membership class was offered. Maitland Presbyterian Church provides support for those in need, whether monetarily, physically or emotionally. Being a member has brought me joy, encouragement and enduring friendships that will last forever.
Dillene Humphrey has been part of the Maitland Presbyterian Church since 2015. She moved to Maitland, Florida in 2015 from Beckley, West Virginia. She recently celebrated her 80th birthday. Dillene is a widow of 23 years. She has three grown children and six precious grandchildren. Dillene enjoys spending time with family and friends playing cards, socializing, and going out to eat. She loves to garden and delights herself in tending to many plants in her home. She has a servant heart and is ready to serve her church family. One of her favorite Bible verses she lives by is 1 John 4:16 - We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.
Liz Doyle is the Chief Development Officer for Florida House on Capitol Hill, America’s only state embassy in Washington, D.C. She is the staff person based in Florida and works from a home office in her childhood home. Liz’s parents took her to Maitland Presbyterian’s little white church when they moved to Maitland in 1960. Although she went to Clemson University and pursued a career in the tourism industry in both South Carolina and Atlanta, she returned home more than 20 years ago and soon after rejoined the church. Liz has been the Chairman of the Hospitality Committee and an Elder, and currently serves on the Church Stewardship and Foundation Committees. She is a long time member of Sarah Circle. In addition to her roles at church, Liz serves as a trustee on the Maitland Public Library Board, is a member of the DAR, and the Chi Omega Alumnae group. She belongs to two book clubs and loves to spend time with her golden retriever, Connor. It is humbling to be called to serve the congregation.
