Gifts & Memorial Donations

Zakri Ziad Yunis, 14, passed away at his home in Williamsburg on Saturday, September 12, 2015.  Born in Amman, Jordan, he was a cherished son of Isam Yunis and Rachael Ludwiczak Yunis of Williamsburg.  In addition to his parents, Zakri is survived by his brothers, Ramsey Yunis, Striar Yunis, both of Williamsburg, his maternal grandparents, Richard and Trudy Ludwiczak of Medina, Ohio, his paternal grandmother, Abla Yunis of Amman, Jordan, and numerous Uncles, Aunts, and Cousins.  He is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Shafiq Yunis.

Zakri owned and operated his own lawn care business, Zig-Zag Lawn Care, the proceeds of which will now be donated to a charity in Zakri’s name.  He attended Jamestown High School and was home schooled prior to that.  He loved nature, being outside, and will be remembered for his zest for life.  He was an Altar Server at St. Bede’s Catholic Church in Williamsburg.  He enjoyed “living large,” as he liked to say, and will be deeply missed by his family, his home school community, and many others who knew him.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, September 16, 2015 at St. Bede’s Catholic Church on Ironbound Rd in Williamsburg with inurnment to occur at the Church Columbarium, immediately following the service.  In lieu of flowers, we know Zakri would appreciate a donation to help those children lost in this world.

    Sam and Rachel, our family sends our deepest condolences with sympathy. We were deelply saddened to hear about Zakri and our hearts are broken for you. When we learned of this sad news our family immediately turned to prayer. We will continue to keep you and your family in our daily thoughts and prayers. “Dear Lord, our family prays for Sam and Rachael who have lost their beloved son Zakri. We ask that you would fill them with a deep sense of your peace and grace. We ask that you would surround them with your love and hope. Give them the strength to carry on and to know that they continue to have a profound purpose on this earth. Lord we are asking that each day they would grow stronger in the knowledge of you and how great you truly are. Lord, on their darkest days be their light. On their loneliest days, be their friend. On their saddest days be their joy. We pray that they would be firmly established in the knowledge of you. We pray that they may be able to comprehend what is the breadth, width, height and depth of your love for them. Let that unfathomable love carry them through their darkest days. Lord, we pray that Zakri's family would be filled with pleasant and joyful memories of Zakri. May each day bring a brighter hope of the future. May they grow closer to you through this untimely loss of their son. Let not their hearts turn bitter, angry or disillusioned. May they once again begin to trust. Bring them the divine comfort and assurance that can only come through your love.” In Jesus name we pray. Amen. Blessings and light, The Wynkoop family (fellow parishioners of St. Bede)
