A WFBC Founder is with the Lord

In January 1950 eighteen believers met at the First Baptist Church of Waupaca. They were concerned about the loss of a fundamental Baptist testimony in the state of Wisconsin. Following a two-day meeting, they formed the Conservative Baptist Churches of Wisconsin, which in 1969 became the Wisconsin Fellowship of Baptist Churches.

One of the eighteen present for that meeting was Mrs. Daisy Sanasac, a faithful pastor’s wife. She and her husband, Rupert, were present in that meeting and shared a burden for this state. Many of those early founders have since gone to be with the Lord over the past 56 years, including Daisy’s husband. On Monday morning, Daisy Sanasac joined her husband and many others as she stepped into the Lord’s presence.

She was a faithful pastor’s wife and mother during her many years of ministry in Wisconsin. Many came to know of her through her summertime ministries at Camp Chetek, where she ran the dining hall and bookstore. In fact, the “Sanasac” cabin at camp has recently been remodeled in her honor. Failing in health for some time, Daisy has been finally released from her suffering.

A visitation for interested friends will be held at the Olson Funeral Home in Menomonie, Wisconsin on Thursday evening from 5-8 PM. Immanuel Baptist Church, where Daisy was a faithful member over these past years, will be holding a memorial service on Friday, September 29 at 11:00 AM. Friends are invited to attend and share in this home-going celebration.

We have been greatly enriched by this dear saint of the Lord. Pray for the Sanasac family as they deal with the loss of their beloved mother.
