May 20, 1951 - March 21, 2019
ObituaryMrs. Annie John was born on May 20th, 1951 in Mundakayam, Kerala, India. She was the third child of 6 children born to Kuriakose Kunjappan and Thankamma Kunjappan.
Annie with her husband John Thayil (Kunjumon) and the only son Jithin (Jeemon) immigrated to the United States in 1990.
Annie had a love for prayer and gathering together for worship and bible study. She enjoyed attending prayer meetings and church services. Throughout her life she remained grounded in her faith and took comfort in prayer. Even though she endured sickness during her last years, she was always pleasant and graceful, and this was a result of her steadfast faith and hope in the Lord.
Proverbs 31:30 says: “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.” Annie feared the LORD. In other words, She gave reverence to the LORD. She knew that the LORD is the Almighty God. She knew that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is God. There is no more above Him.
Annie was called to depart this earth on Thursday March 21st, 2019 at 9:00AM. Though she will be missed by family and friends, let us pray that she be remembered by the Lord and that her memory be eternal.
Special Thanks from the Family We express our utmost gratitude to our family and friends and especially the members of St. George Orthodox Church, Irving for their incredible support and prayers during this difficult time. Annie loves all of you so much. Please remember Annie and all of us in your prayers.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” (2 Tim. 4:7-8)
