She enjoyed playing card games and spending time with her friends and family and she especially enjoyed riding on her grandson Casey’s boat. Zella's love for her family was unparalleled. She was a dedicated wife and mother, always ensuring her family felt loved and cared for. Her love was evident in her actions, and her family feels blessed to have had such a loving and kind mother. Zella will be dearly missed by her family.
