The St. Matthew's Family of Faith Mourns the Loss of Jean Anna Roth (Deinhart)
Born: November 3, 1932
Entered into Rest: April 16, 2023
Our dear sister Jean has ended her earthly pilgrimage and has been carried home in the arms of our Savior. In this season of Easter, we give thanks for the gift of life that death itself cannot conquer. The God who raised Jesus is the same God who will raise us up to a full and unending life in the heart of God.
Jean has been a beloved part of our church family for many, many years. Even in the last several years when her memory was not reliable, she was always keen to know the news of the church, especially concerned for those who were ill or who, like herself, could not get out much anymore. Her memory may have been unreliable, but her heart was steadfast!
It is never easy to part with someone we love, but we are comforted in our grief that our parting is for a brief moment. Soon we will be united with all whom we love but see no longer in union with all the saints in the heart of God's eternal love.
We lift up in prayer all of Jean's family. Her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren bless her memory. Jean is survived by her daughter Cheryl and her husband Ron (Skip) Larson and their children (and grandchildren): Andrea and Tim Hacic (Charlie Rose and Corrina) and Sarah and Tyler Ferster. Jean is also survived by her daughter Samantha and her husband Michael Campbell and their son, Randy Campbell. Jean was predeceased by her husband Carl and her son Dale. Jean is also survived by her brother Frederick Deinhart and his wife Alberta and many beloved nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
