I worked with Zonia at A&P from !970 until it closed in the 80s. She was a great person to be around and a hard worker. She was well liked by both customers and other employees. In social gathering she was always the life of the party. I'm sure shes with the love of her life Bob. As I don't think she ever got over that loss. Rest in peace Zonia. You will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear about Zonia's passing. I've had the privilege of knowing her for many years. We had such fun together during our times of working at A&P and then at the many reunions in the following years. My prayers are with her family and thanking the Lord for the time we all had with Zonia.

It pains me greatly that do to this terrible Covid-19 virus I will not be able to pay my last respects in person. I worked with Zonia for many years and appreciated that she was the driving force behind several A&P Reunions. May she now receive the rest and glory of the eternal kingdom. God Bless you Zonia.
