Edward Junda Memory Eternal.....

Long time parishioner of St. John’s, Edward Junda, fell asleep in the Lord on September 27, 2017. He was a member of the Board of Trustees for many years and served meticulously as a controller and treasurer of the church. Ed knew and was friends with everyone and was always available to gladly help at any time. He and his beloved wife, Rose, who predeceased him in 2007, were devoted to St. John’s Church and their presence was visible at every service and event. His and his wife’s past efforts and love of the Fellowship of Orthodox Christians in America have enabled us to continue our chapter’s existence to this day. We who knew him as a fellow member of the Passaic “O” Club are grateful for his diligence as treasurer of the club, a position in which he served for decades. They both were dedicated to the organization and made many friends whom they cherished throughout the New Jersey District and nationally. As long as he was able, he continued to visit our parish; and we all missed him when he was no longer able to be in our presence. He was predeceased by a son, John, in 2014. Ed is survived by a son, Joseph and his wife, Jennifer and grandchildren, Kyle and Brielle; a daughter-in-law, Nancy and grandchildren, Anastasia and Alexander; and brother, Michael Junda of Newnan, Ga.


“Do Thou the Lord, give rest to the soul of Thy departed servant, Edward, in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, where all sickness, sorrow ,and sighing have fled away. Pardon every transgression which he hath committed whether by word or deed, or thought.”    Memory Eternal!


Viewing is on Sunday Oct 1, 2017, from 4 to 8 p.m., with Panikhida at 7 p.m., at J.C. Fila Lexington Memorial Home, 340 Lexington Ave., Clifton, NJ. Funeral is Monday, Oct. 2, 2017, at 10 a.m., at St. John’s R.O. Church in Passaic. Interment is in East Ridgelawn Cemetery, Clifton. Pictures of Ed are posted in the Photo Gallery.
