Even though we had her for almost 95 years, it’s still hard to say goodbye. I will cherish my memories of holiday dinners, camping trips, annual B & B trips with just the girls, and our one-on-one visits in her last years. Bye for now, Aunt Zelma, I love you!

We have lots of fun memories from the reunions. Aunt Zelma will be missed by many. We are sending prayers to the whole family at this difficult time. I am sure she is having a good time right now with Uncle Edgar, Billy, and Robin in heaven. We love you

Tony and Charlotte

Barb, Rick and boys … so very sorry for your loss. The few times I met your mother, she was always kind and friendly to me and my family. You all have our sympathy and love.
