Death of Alice Tkach

Retired President, Joe Tkach, shared the following note about his mother. We join the Tkach family in their grief and in their hope of resurrection.

Our mom, Alice Elaine Tkach, was four months shy of turning 93 and lived a full life. She loved God, church, and family. She was the youngest child of Angelo and Lura Apostolou, born near Gary, Indiana in January 1930. She passed peacefully in her sleep on October 2, after praying with my youngest sister Jennifer.

We are comforted with the knowledge that she has now burst into eternity in the full realization of sitting in heavenly places with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Of course, my family and friends already miss her, but we feel the total joy she now fully realizes in Christ.

She is survived by her three children, Joseph Tkach II (Tamara), Tanya Horchak (Doug), and Jennifer Raica (Ricard) as well as her grandchildren; Joseph III and Lapio Tkach, Stephanie and Evan Green, Christine and Jeremy Sehler, Gregory and Sandy Horchak, Rebecca and Michael Gutierrez, Janelle and Chad Tracy, Joseph and Ebony Butler, Jonathan and Melisa Butler, Jessica and Ryan Sheehan; and great grandchildren: Dorian Sehler, Zoe Sehler, Camilo Guterriez, Halen Tracy, Bodhi Tracy, Oliver Butler and Riley Butler.

  1. Dear Joe and Family,

    We are saddened to hear about your mother’s passing away, but, at the same time, we rejoice with you in the understanding that Alice could not be in better hands than in God’s. Our journey in this life is full of edgy stones and uphill struggles. Still, the grace of our Lord never forsakes us. He has a plan, and it is all good.

    With love,
    Santiago and Elke

    1. Dear Joe and family,

      Nancy and I continue remembering you in our prayers. It’s comforting we have a family of friends praying for each other in this journey of living and sharing Jesus’ gospel. Thank you for sharing your mother’s freedom in Jesus. Your description gave me a glimpse of what I attempt to imagine. It’s heartwarming.

      Ken and Nancy
