Paula Dal Zakanych Obituary
December 29, 1938 - July 25, 2017 Paula was a grade school teacher. She often mentioned how much she loved all her students. They were her pride and joy. Paula started her teaching career at a private school in the San Fernando Valley in the 1970s. She moved on to public school in the Los Angeles school district and extended her education to become a reading specialist. Paula moved to Central California in the early 1980s. In 1984 she started working at Templeton Elementary School. Her assignment was "Homeschool Teacher." That's where she reluctantly retired from in 2005. Paula also loved being involved at St. William's Church in Atascadero, where she was "well-loved and respected." She volunteered teaching first holy communion classes, was a member of the Altar Society and was proudly a Eucharistic Minister. She is survived by husband of 58 years, Edward M Zakanych; children: Edward P. Zakanych, Kathryn Z. Bloomquist and husband Michael Bloomquist, and Andrew J. Zakanych and wife Kimberly Zakanych; grandchildren: Katharine Bloomquist and Scot Bloomquist. A Funeral Mass will be held September 7th, 11:00am at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, 18400 Kinzie St. and Reseda Blvd., Northridge, CA 91325. The family would like to thank Legend Gardens in Palm Desert, CA, and all their incredible staff for creating a warm, welcoming, loving environment for Paula's last few months with us!
