During World War II, Zola and her sister Mildred worked at a plant in Huntington, WV to support the war effort. For many years she did domestic house work for people in our area. She was a very hard worker and a true professional.
Zola graduated from Walkersville High School and was a former member of Bethlehem Baptist Church. Over the years she also attended Good Hope Prayer Chapel, Stealey Assembly of God, and more recently Clarksburg Baptist Church.
Zola, her husband, and family had a gospel band many years ago and sang in several area churches. Zola loved music and enjoyed hearing her children sing. She also enjoyed the group Celtic Thunder that sang songs that reminded her of her Scotch-Irish heritage. She was known by many as “Gram” or “Grammy” and she loved the beauty of God’s creation. She loved to watch the birds and listen to them sing. She loved flowers and fresh produce from the garden. But most of all she loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and her family and friends.
There is not enough room here for us to write about all the kindness and generosity she has shown throughout her lifetime. She truly lived her life as an example of the love that Jesus taught.
