Bob, So sorry for your loss. May she rest in peace.
Deb & Robert , so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. I have so many fond childhood memories of your mom ,dad and the two of you. Her laugh was always infectious, memories of the times at the lake and the shore will never be forgotten. My mom passed away last year so I can feel you pain.
We are the same age, Anne and I. At age 17, we were the best of friends who worked on the assembly lines at Nevins-Church Press in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. Anne was outgoing and smart who enjoyed bowling, playing shuffleboard and cards. Holy-moly; if you weren't her partner in pinochle, watch out because she knew how to bid and almost always won this card game.
Anne introduced her brother, Billy, to this skinny balink and he and I stayed married for 50 years until his death. And now, I'm to mourn his sister's death. But, today I can grieve easier because I know that Anne was deeply comforted by her faith. She believed that death is the passageway to eternal life and that her life is changed, not ended. Rest in peace my devoted friend while those on this side of Heaven miss you.
Bob, very sorry for the loss of your mother, she was a lovely lady. You can take comfort that you took very good care of her.
What a Beautiful woman, Mrs. Zipf was. I am very sorry to read of your loss. With all her love and joys, I know she was an amazing woman. I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is John 11:25, which says, " Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved mother, grandma and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, jw.org
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
My aunt’s life’s journey led her to a path that many will find difficult to follow. For it is certain those narrow gates that lead to life are opening up for this gentle soul. I hope my cousins find comfort in knowing their mother happily filled out her days on earth surrounded by the respect and genuine love of her many friends and family. She fought the good fight of faith and accomplished our Lord’s work on earth. Kindness poured earnestly from her heart and she made it easy for us to return her affection.
My Grandmother was immense in her love and acceptance of people. She had an even-keeled embrace of her fellow woman and man. She was a good sport, in taking a joke or burden. She had a child-like faith, of which came natural. She made it look easy. And her sensitivity and humor was as welcome as fresh air and clean water. I love her dearly, will remember her fondly, and can confidently say that she only influenced me for the better. Her faith in my abilities and love for me as a human being will shape my thoughts and character long after she has left.
I love you, "gramma". And I'll, for certain, see you when I pray. When I eat ice cream or play cards. When I hear laughter. Or when I pick pennies from the pavement.
I have lost my best frIend
My memory of Mom is the constant love she shared each day of her life with everyone, and her willingness to be teased and laugh in her infectious way. She had a steadfast faith in her Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, whom she would faithfully pray to and proclaim to me and others. The power of God's love and truth was displayed in her in ways that touched many people in her life. Anne was kind and caring beyond most people's examples in this world, a shining light of her Lord's love flowing from Him to her husband, Walter, and her mother, with whom she is now with both in heaven, to her son, Robert, and my wife, Debbie, and her 6 grandchildren, and many more whom God loved through Anne Zipf. Thank You, Jesus, for her life with us. She was and is precious like You! If you didn't get to know Anne as well as we did, look up Jesus in the Bible, and you will see a similarity in love, for you too to know Anne, and Jesus! Love, Paul and many more...
You will be missed but certainly not forgotten!!
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
