The Late Mrs. Evelyn Anderson-Zayzay

It is with deep sadness that, the Zayzay, Anderson and Kpaan families regret to announce the home-going  of their wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and cousin the Late, Mrs. Evelyn Anderson –Zayzay. This sudden, untimely and sad event occurred on Sunday September 27, 2015 during the course of her employed duties, at her place of work in Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania USA.

Evelyn, affectionately called “Lyn” by many was a devoted, peaceful, loving, supportive, virtuous, humble and jovial wife and mother. She went the extra mile to care for her family. She did not allow the challenges of life to deter her from accomplishing her set goals.  She was one that showed concern not only for her immediate family but for her extended family as well, friends and her community. She wore an ever happy laughter on her face, which will always be remembered.

Evelyn, was a strong follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. This quest to serve her  Lord, drove her to be one of the founding members of  her affiliating  Church -  “The New Life Christian Fellowship”, and a member of  “The Women of Faith” – a women prayer ministry in Pennsylvania, which she served up to  her demise.
