Todesanzeige aus dem Englischen Forum: + Jean Mayland


Dear Forum Friends,

Today (2021-12-21) at Hexham Abbey in Northumberland is the Thanksgiving Service for the life of Jean Mayland.  Jean was President of EFECW 1986 to 1990.  She led the Assembly in York in 1990 attended by 300 women representing, for the first time, women from all over Europe.  She introduced me to the Forum by writing personal letters about the forthcoming Assembly where I represented Mothers' Union of the Anglican Church.  She was a campaigner for women and four years later she was one of the first Anglican women priests.

She has been an encouraging support of the Forum in England, though increasingly frail in recent years.  I shall miss her especially her campaigning zeal for the rights of women in the church.

With love from Dorothy
