Private Condolence


Posted at 08:11pm
To the family and friends of Joan Zanchi,
I am very sorry for your loss.
Learning that the God of the Bible promises relief from the pain of death and a fix for those who have already succumbed,
keeps my heart and mind open and renewed to what will come.
May you find comfort in the Bible’s hope that one day we will see our lost loved ones again.
Jesus showed how this promise is sure when he resurrected Lazarus John 11:1-44.
Such bible truths provide us with hope and comfort as we look forward to the day when death will no longer be and those who have sadly lost their lives will be awakened onto a Paradisiac Earth, to a life free of sickness, pain, sorrow and the worries of ever dying again.
This being the Creator’s original purpose, it will indeed be fulfilled.
Though this wonderful Promise from the One who can and will fulfill it doesn’t take away the pain and grief of death, my wish is that it brings you peace and a future hope during this sad time.
Genesis 2:7, 8, 15; Isaiah 55:11; Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3, 4;
John 6:40; 1 Corinthians 15:25, 26 🙏🏼

So sorry to hear of Joan's death. Another cousin gone on, to meet her step mother Elsie and sister Patricia, brothers Lloyd, Sherwood and Judson. A fine family, now all passed away.

I've been blessed to have been the neighbors of both Joan and Louie Zanchi. They've became bonus grandparents to my six year old daughter Anissa. Joan will be deeply missed. God bless 🙏 Rest in paradise.

Joan was the youngest or you might say the baby in the family she was well protected by her older brothers Judd , Sherwood and Lloyd Mclean. Joan was very close to her only sister Pat who looked after her baby sister when there mother Sadie passed away. Joan was a strong caring soul and a home body remaining in the family home caring for her father Austin and stepmother Elsie Mclean. Joans kind and Spirited heart will missed as she is reunited with her family in the arms of our lord.
