Janelle R. (Zurcher) Fosnaugh, 52, went to her heavenly home on Monday, March 31, 2014. Born in Krugersdorp, South Africa, she was the daughter of missionaries Rev. Norman and Carol Zurcher. Janelle earned her Bachelor's degree from Olivet Nazarene University. Janelle was a woman of God. She loved to worship the Lord and share His love with others. That passion for the Lord led her and her husband to serve the Lord as missionaries for 18 years in the Navajo nation in Arizona, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, and Haiti. She served alongside her husband, Lane, who pastored Elkhart Northside Church of the Nazarene and is currently serving at South Lake Church of the Nazarene in Crown Point, IN.
