Death of elder’s wife

We were saddened to learn of the death of Marilyn Sue Zvorak, wife of GCI Elder Jack Zvorak. Marilyn passed away suddenly following church services on May 7 while fellowshipping with members of Pathway of Grace, GCI’s congregation in Mesquite, TX, where she and Jack served. Marilyn suffered a heart attack and apparently died instantly. She would have been 70 on June 1.

Marilyn became a believer in her early teens and remained faithful all her life. She met Jack while he was in the Air Force and the couple began attending WCG in 1977. The Zvoraks lived in the Kansas City, MO, area until September 2015, when they moved to Dallas to be closer to their daughter, Denise, and the grandchildren. “They need us,” she always said. She loved her Wednesday nights with the grandkids.

Marilyn’s love for the Lord was demonstrated in her service to others at Pathway of Grace. She served as a greeter, always welcoming guests with a smile. She will be greatly missed by family, friends and her congregation.

Funeral service for Marilyn will be on Thursday May 11 in Dallas, Texas. A memorial service is planned for May 21 in Kansas, MO.

Please remember Jack and the family in your prayers.

  1. Dear Jack and family,

    Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.

    Love Lives On

    Those we love remain with us
    for love itself lives on,
    and cherished memories never fade
    because a loved one’s gone.
    Those we love can never be
    more than a thought apart,
    far as long as there is memory,
    they’ll live on in the heart.


    In Him,
    Santiago and Elke

  3. Jack,

    You and Marilyn were close friends and associates for over twenty years in ministry in Kansas City. You both served zealously and unselfishly, and made a huge contribution to the members of our congregation. Together we navigated some interesting times and turbulent waters and I’m glad you were there, using your gifts in service to God. You were always there. We could count on you. You now enter a new chapter in life, and we pray for God’s comfort, guidance, and blessing as you write the pages of that chapter. With our love and prayers! Ray and Carol Meyer
