    Sorry the system wont let me write more in the post above,

    but I have heard from a reliable source that Jenny Jackson lost her ten year battle with cancer.

    A funeral service was held for her yesterday at Bethel she was 54.

    Paul Grundy (JWfacts) has said in previous posts that he knew her and she was a particularly nice person.

    YESIDID- Thanks for the info. That is sad. And too young to die for sure ! I often wonder how some of my JW family members are going to handle death and growing older with sicknesses. I think a lot of them are really wondering why the paradise didn't come yet to save them from sicknesses and death. Thanks for posting

    Sorry to hear it.

    Brothers Barr and Splane gave the service.

    I imagine Geoff would have chosen those two, so does it mean he is in the "Softer" camp.

    Barr and Splane are not known as hardliners are they?

    I seem to recall reading here from people who knew him that Geoff Jackson was a pretty decent bloke.

    Very sad; he's young to be widowed.

    Unless she professed to be of the anointed then I guess he believed he'll never see her again?

    Sorry to hear of it. 54 is far too young. Surely she was afforded top-notch medical care.

    The Bethelites who have been kicked to the curb after years of loyal volunteer service will simply have to wait on Jehovah... or Obama... which ever comes first, if ever.

    Very sad. God has read her heart, we will leave her with Him.
    Hope Geoff gets the support he will need in his loss

    Oh no! She was such a nice person. She and Geoff did a Fijian dance for class 119 at Gilead at a barbecue. She was cool! In spite of my views on Geoff, as a couple, they were very down to earth and accessible.

    I had no idea she was sick. My heart goes out their famillies....
