This is an obituary that appeared in a $cientology publication. I'm not going to disclose the person's name. Just to fit I'll call her Jane Doe. I'm going to change some other specifics as well.

"Jane Doe peacefully departed her body on (date). Jane, a veteran Sea Org member and a 25 year executive with IAS Administrations, left, having completed all her cycles and with her family at her side. Jane never did anything half-heartedly; she acted with compassion and purpose, keeping in mind the bigger picture of making the IAS into a huge and powerful membership organization, just as LRH intended."

I hope this person finds some peace if there is a hereafter.

She must have routed out of the Sea Org & gone staff. Otherwise, they'd be talking about the date her thetan & new host was to return to post for duty.

Lung cancer takes a lot of them. They smoke like chimneys (aka like Hubbard did) and put their trust in Sci to keep them healthy. By the time the cancer gets bad enough they go to a real doctor but it is too late.

Or so I was told by a doctor walking to Kaiser when I was at a big blue protest.

“having completed all her cycles…”

More appropriate phrase would be “the death completed all her cycles for her”. I cannot even imagine how worn out a person would be after working for CoS for 25 years.

Super Sad...I hope this person comes back as an angel and warns others about this cult.

Very sweet, bjedi. :)

And yes, that "completed all of her cycles" also got my attention.

It has all sorts of connotations to me -- I don't want to read too much into it, but to me it reads like, "This is how to die, Scientologists..." having completed all of your cycles (and paid for them).

It also sounds like it was written by someone who didn't know her, or care about her. Certainly not loved her.

You're right, Wieber. Such a cold obituary. It is sad.

I do believe in a hereafter, and I pray that she is in peace.

When the curtain is finally pulled aside, isn't this the end of the bridge?

Wow, are Scientology staff still typically heavy smokers? It was that way when I was on staff in the 70's. I smoked back then, but quit a bit after leaving staff and Scientology, realizing it was not a healthy thing to be doing. Do they still believe, as I did back then, that they can abuse their bodies however they want, and not pay the consequences -- you know, theta at cause over MEST (Matter, Energy, Space, & Time -- the physical universe) -- are staff still deluded enough to believe that fallacy, and not follow medical common sense?
