[The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)] Ecumenical and interfaith groups across the world are mourning the passing of the Rev. Robina Winbush. The director of Ecumenical Relations in the Presbyterian Church USA’s Office of the General Assembly died on March 12 while returning from a 10-day visit to the Middle East. She was deplaning in New York when she collapsed at the airport.

A native of Columbus, Ohio, Winbush received her education from Kent State and Harvard universities as well as Union Theological Seminary in New York.  She began her ministry at the Presbyterian Church USA more than 30 years ago when the church opened its offices in Louisville, Kentucky. She served in an ecumenical role in Global Missions before taking a pastorate in Queens, New York.
