My wife Ann went to heaven this morning

27th October 1946 — 8th June 2024

(Devoted wife of Rev Ivan Foster for 56 years)

Many of you will know that Ann, my beloved wife of 56 years and three months, was taken into the South West Acute Hospital in Enniskillen, on Friday 31st of May. There she was kindly cared for, and our family was likewise helped in every way as we kept watch at her bedside.

We will ever be grateful to the nursing staff in Accident & Emergency and Wards 1 and 7.

This morning at 4.08, my Ann went to be with Christ, which is far better.

Reading God’s Word to Ann on 4th June

Those of you who knew of her illness were praying for her and me and our family.

We thank you for that most sincerely.

She was my sweetheart and fellow-soldier, unfailing in her support and encouragement in the work of the Lord over the years. Many of those years were turbulent and dangerous, but Ann never once complained, wavered or drew back.

She has entered in to her reward, and I will journey on now lacking her sweet counsel and company, but I will join her one day.

What a blessing to be saved and to have the hope of ever being with the Lord amidst our redeemed loved ones.

The Lord bless you all richly,

Ivan Foster

Thank you all for your kind acts of sympathy!

I have already begun to receive quite a few ‘sympathy’ cards. It is not possible for me to reply to each one.

I have likewise received a large number of emails, which I have striven to respond to.

However, it is getting a little beyond my capabilities to reply individually to each kind message.

Please accept this statement as the sincere thanks of myself and my family for the messages from those who out of kindness have communicated their sympathies to us on the passing of our loved one, Mrs Ann Foster.
