Trinity Broadcasting Network co-founder Jan Crouch, who had been in the hospital after suffering a massive stroke last week, has died at the age of 78, the family announced early Tuesday.
"Laurie and I have just watched the transition of our precious Mother from this world to the next; watched her step into the presence of Jesus and into her heavenly reward," Jan Crouch's son Mat and other family members announced early Tuesday. "Jan Crouch, known around the world as Momma Jan, has gone home."
The family added, "Those who battled for the Kingdom of God knew her as a fighter — someone who didn't give up, someone who fought relentlessly to get the Gospel around the world… To thousands of orphans around the world, and those orphaned in spirit, she was Momma Jan, quick with a smile, a gift, and a word of encouragement."
Last week, TBN announced on its website, "Our sister and TBN co-founder Jan Crouch was taken to the hospital on Wednesday evening, May 25th, after suffering a stroke in the Orlando, Florida area. She is resting comfortably as her physicians and family care for her."
