Zelda was my mother's best friend in her years at Golden Pond. They shared so many memories of their lives with each other. She was a very special Christian lady. She always made my mother smile.

Zelda and I always visited after the church service. She was young at heart and always fun to visit. The passing of another of our old timers. A life well lived.
