Funeral service for Mrs Jacqueline JohnstonRev. Ivan FosterIsaiah 3:10; Hebrews 9:27Tue Feb 16, 2016 · Funeral Service

Rev. Larry Power, minister in charge of Kilskeery FPC, delivered a gospel message from Hebrews 9:27. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”

Rev. Ivan Foster, retired minister, delivered a tribute to Mrs. Jacqueline Johnston.

Rev. Foster based his remarks on this text: “Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings,” Isaiah 3:10.

She was a beloved sister in Christ.

Being widowed so young, there was a special place in the hearts of the people here. Widows are under God’s special care. “And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart,” Zechariah 7:10. Kilskeery folk acted in the spirit of that word.

The congregation took her upon their hearts at the time of Jimmy’s death and also through the trying period of Neil’s illness following his accident.

In our prayers of late she was tenderly and lovingly referred to as “wee Ms Johnston”!

She was a faithful church member and an admired Christian.

She bore with great faith and patience her trials and of more recent times her sickness. She was admired for her determination to attend God’s house as long as she could even when it meant having an oxygen tank beside her in the car and in the pew!

We salute her memory and we will miss her greatly. I am sure I speak on behalf of all, especially Mrs Thompson, who travelled with her to God’s house so often.

May the Lord bless the family through the memory of the faithful, loving witness of this gentle and good and godly woman.
