Tragic Death of Mrs. Rania Hanna Phillip al-Khoury

Rania al-KhouryIt is with great sorrow that we announce the tragic death of Mrs. Rania al-Khoury who passed away on Thursday 6 June 2019.

She suffered an unexpected diabetic shock on Saturday June 1st when she was rushed to hospital. She was admitted to intensive care where she was until she passed away.

She was the educator (teacher in charge of boarding children) of Boys Boarding Home 2. She was dedicated, loving, committed to her work, patient, and kind. She worked quietly, and her typical  smile never left her face.

This tragic news is very difficult to believe. It came so suddenly without warning. She was young, active, and very healthy. She never complained from anything. Her main worry was caring for her mother whom she regularly travelled to Beirut to look after.

She will be greatly missed by the boys of BBH2, the girls she looked after for many years in the girls' boarding homes, her colleagues in the boarding department, and the whole community of Schneller School.

Jesus said: I am the resurrection and the life. She who believes in me will live, even though she dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.

The Lord is risen! He is risen indeed!
