Ascención Zavala was born on July 6, 1946, to Maura Aviles de Pacheco and Juan Pacheco in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. Ascención at the age of 16 went to live with her aunt in Los Ángeles CA where she began attending meetings and studying the bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses. In 1967 she dedicated her life to Jehovah God and got baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. For the next 54 years she faithfully and loyally served her God Jehovah. On May 18, 1968 Ascención married Carlos Zavala Sr; they had 5 children, Carlos Jr, Miriam, Eunice, Jonathan and Vivian. During her first pregnancy Ascención quit her employment to raise a family. Ascención was a loving, faithful and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and loyal friend. She was known for her altruistic desire to help others, housing family and sometimes even strangers. Ascención was hospitable, industrious, generous, empathetic and kind. She had a gift at gardening and enjoyed cooking new dishes. She loved animals and appreciated Jehovah’s wonderful creation. She loved her 5 children and her 10 grandchildren very much.
Ascencion was preceded in death by her father Juan Pacheco of Walsenburg, Co, her grandson Caleb W Mendiola from Delta, Co and her son Carlos I Zavala from Los Angeles, Ca. She is survived by 7 sisters, 6 brothers, 3 daughters , 1 son, 9 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. She will be dearly missed by her entire family and all those whose lives she touched.
We look forward to seeing her again very soon for Jehovah promises:
“Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life” ~John 5:28,29
