Virginia Jahn

From Heather Jahn
It is my sad duty to have to tell you that Virginia passed away this week. She had been discharged from hospital into a nursing home on 8th April where they carried on caring for her. Sadly we were not able to visit her, so we wrote to her and phoned everyday and encircled her with lots of prayer, praying that she could feel the presence and comfort of our Lord around her. She became more and more sleepy over the proceeding week and died peacefully in her sleep around 6ish on Tuesday morning 21/04/2020.
Thank you so much for all your support to her over the years – I know it meant a lot to her.
With kind regards
Heather
Someone who knew her well just wrote this….It is impossible to summarise how wonderful Virginia was. She and her late husband were missionaries in north India. Virginia knew joys as well as tragedy having lost two sons and a daughter. She was American and the family loved her stories of life in America as well as life in India. Upon reaching England in 1968 after Max, her husband died, she used her Hindi speaking skill to minister to many people in Southall. She was full of love, faith, care and constant prayer for others. It is selfish to be sad but I should rejoice that she has gone to meet her Lord and Saviour whom she served all her life. It is often the case that one paints a rosy picture of one who has died but this is not the case with Virginia. I thank God for sharing her with us.

Virginia died at Chiswick Nursing Home this morning. Please pray for Rosemary & John, Lois & Dave, John, Heather and Virginia’s other relatives and friends.
