Zona Adored her 9 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren deeply. Never a day passed without her talking about them. Preceding her in death were her 5 Sisters and 4 Brothers.
Zona was very dedicated to her husband, children and grandchildren. Best described as the perfect example of Proverbs 31 as a wife, homemaker, quilter, sewer, gardener and Special Events Coordinator at Netherwood Park Church of Christ.
Her tender, kind, giving and loving spirit will be greatly missed. Zona had a great sense of humor and great giggles that filled the room. She never complained and was quick to dive right in and help no matter what it was.
The family thanks the wonderful caregivers from Hospice De La Luz; Special love and appreciation to Touched by a White Dove; Carmen and Curtis, God truly blessed us with your love and dedication to our family. Zona truly loved you both dearly.
