The world’s largest Christian television network tweeted Saturday that Jan Crouch had suffered a stroke. On Tuesday the network announced the 78-year-old passed away.
Crouch and her husband Paul Crouch co-founded the network in 1973 when they bought one station — KLXA-TV, Fontana, California for $1 million. Paul Crouch died in 2013.
