Jeanie Marie Barnhart Jarvis, 64, of East Finley Twp., PA, passed away peacefully with her devoted husband holding her hand on Saturday, October 21, 2017, following a brief illness.
Born on November 15, 1952, she is the daughter of the late Neil and Ella Tiger Barnhart.
On November 13, 1981 she married (Pastor) James Jarvis, who survives.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her daughter, Jamie, son-in-law Michael, her grandsons and her sister, Adele Betty (Will) Musgrove.
She loved reading, studying her Bible, taking pictures, being asked bible trivia questions, listening to gospel music, and above all spending time with her family.
Although mostly behind the scenes, she was instrumental in helping her husband, Pastor James (Jimmy) Jarvis, shepherd of the flock at Rogersville Christian Church, The Place of Grace.
In July of 2013, her dream of being a grandmother came true when she was blessed with her first grandchild, Elijah. In July of 2016, she joyfully welcomed her second grandchild, Matthew. She was lovingly called “Waga” by Elijah who adored her. The time she spent with her grand babies was the highlight of her life. In the short time Elijah and Matthew were privileged to know their Waga, she showered them with enough love to last them a lifetime.
She fought a courageous 36 year-long battle with severe rheumatoid arthritis. Despite her daily struggles, she never lost faith and remained forever hopeful that she would be healed of the disease one day, whether here on earth or when she reached her final Home. She finally won her battle with rheumatoid arthritis on Saturday, October 21, 2017, when she was welcomed into Heaven and the loving arms of the Savior she faithfully served.
She will be greatly missed but her memory and the love she showed will live forever in the hearts of the many who loved her.
