Ms. Ji Shuyua, who was in her 50s, lived in Da'an City, Jilin Province. She started practicing Falun Dafa in November, 1997, and benefited in both mind and body. She held group Fa study sessions in her home. After the persecution began in July 1999, the local police and officers from the neighborhood administration continually harassed her at home. Her son was arrested for going to Beijing to appeal for Dafa, and lost his job. Under enormous emotional stress, Ms. Ji died of cancer in January 2000.
