Funeral Card Friday: Wasyl Chernecky

While going through my recently deceased cousin’s papers, I came across the funeral card of Wasyl Chernecky. Wasyl was my cousin’s maternal grandfather. To me, he is the father-in-law of my uncle.

His funeral card is quite simple. The front is an image of Christ.

The back reads:
           
My Jesus have mercy on the Soul of
            Wasyl Chernecky
            Born March 15, 1889 
            Passed Away April 24, 1977

O my most gracious Saviour! Merciful God! Have mercy upon Thine heritage, hear the wailing and suspirations of the repenting, mercifully forgive their transgressions, and liberate them from the deserved punishment, and grant upon them, there, the blessed peace, that unceasingly they may glorify, praise and magnify Thee., the Lord God of all living, in all ages. Amen.

The funeral home used was Gordon K Maclean Funeral Home. He is buried at the Holy Ghost Ukrainian Cemetery in Valley Township, Chester County.
