One of the longest serving elders of the Presbyterian Church, Clara Jurawan-Alexander, died yesterday morning at the San Fernando General Hospital.

She was 98, and had been ailing for some time.

Jurawan-Alexander served as an elder for decades following the death of her husband Dickson Alexander, in 1965. He was the headmaster of the Reform Presbyterian School.

Jurawan-Alexander served for many years in the pastoral charges of Marabella, Reform and Ben Lomond. She was an honorary elder in recent years following retirement from active service and was still attending church for communion last year, before she fell ill.

Rev Bruce Kramer said Jurawan-Alexander “served at all levels of the church up to the highest body, the Synod”.

“She was faithful and dedicated, always committed to ensuring things worked properly and to order...she gave her all when she did something,” he said.

A former student of Tranquility School and Naparima Girls’ High School, Jurawan-Alexander was also politically involved, running in county council elections and serving with the Organisation for Reconstruction (ONR).

Jurawan-Alexander was the mother of Edmond (dec) Loretta (dec) Frederick, Irwin, Dunstann and Gail. She was the grandmother of 12, great grandmother of 14 and a relative of the Alexanders, Jurawans, Jagessars, Boodoosinghs and the Harananans.

Funeral arrangements are to be arranged.
