Mary Purintun
Secretary

Having been born and raised in De Smet I was baptized as an infant, confirmed and married to my husband, Craig at American Lutheran Church. I have worked as the church secretary since March, 1999. In my spare time I love to spend time with my family and being involved in their activities. Reading and cooking are two of my favorite hobbies. My office hours at the church are Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 11:30am.

Austie Albrecht
Faith Community Nurse

I have been the Faith Community Nurse in our community since 2016. I graduated from SDSU in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and have been a registered nurse in De Smet since then.

My husband, Rustin, and I have 3 children, Rogan, Alaina and Riley.  We live on a farm outside of De Smet and raise sheep.  Outside of farming and nursing, I like to garden, golf, swim, read and watch our children in their activities.
