Zelma later moved to California and Texas before relocating permanently to Florida in the 1960’s. A long-time resident of Franklin County, “Miss Zelma” never met a stranger. Through her work with Anchor Realty, she met and was beloved by many for her down-to-earth humor and genuine interest in people.



Widowed three times, Zelma was also preceded in death by her youngest son. She is survived and lovingly remembered by two children, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Salvation Army.
