85 Jeep Grand Wagoneer losing power while driving

We have a 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer that lost power twice in one week. The first time, AAA was unable to jump-start it and it was towed to a service department where they were unable to determine the cause. The second time, I was driving it when it cut out completely, no power for flashers and no sound at all from the starter. However, after it sat for 20 minutes or so, I heard a little "whine" sound (possibly fuel pump priming?). It started and I drove it home with no problem. If anyone has experienced this and can offer insight, I thank you for your help. We have had the '85 since it was new and we are very attached to it. Thanks, Hyacinth
