In Memoriam - Soon Ja McDevitt

Rev. Michael Jenkins

Soon Ja McDevitt died Dec. 27 2002 of stomach cancer at her Fairfax home. She was 50. Dr. Yang, Rev. In Hoi Lee and I wish to express our profound gratitude for the life of faith demonstrated by our beloved sister.

Tom and Soon Ja are close to True Parent's heart and have demonstrated tremendous faith as a Blessed Central Family. Through many central missions for our True parents this family always stands on the frontline and in the forefront of God's dispensation.

We are grateful for their attitude of faith in these trying times. We also have been strengthened and inspired by Soon Ja's attitude of absolute faith and how she demonstrated profound love for God and True Parents during this difficult course. Tom has demonstrated an attitude that is a reflection of True Father's heart: Unwavering love and faith. Soon Ja is one of the most kind and loving sisters I ever met in my life. She is a great citizen of Cheon Il Guk!

It is comforting to know that Soon Ja is going to a wonderful place now that God and True Parents have prepared for her in the Spirit World. She is a wonderful wife of a great Blessed Central Family. The course of their family is certainly with deep meaning and can only be seen as a course that God is manifesting to save America and the World.

Mrs. McDevitt was buried at Fort Lincoln Cemetery in Brentwood after a funeral service at Washington Family Church in the District. Mrs. McDevitt is survived by her husband; five sons, Macklee Thomas, Casato Joseph, Joehun Daniel, Patrick James and John Michael; her mother, Sung Choon Park of Kok Sung; four sisters, Yun Soon Lee, Kum Nae Lee, Yun Ja Lee and Kyung Ja Lee; and a niece, Nan Kyung. Her father, Man Hee Lee, died in the late 1950s.
