Zelda was born on September 20, 1926 in Herbert, SK. She loved her large extended family, and never failed to remember birthdays. She was a great cook and housekeeper. Zelda had many interests: reading, crocheting, knitting, and traveling. Every fall and winter, she followed the curling bonspiels. She worked in the town and school libraries for a number of years. Zelda was a good conversationalist who could answer questions about the long period of history she witnessed.
Zelda was a woman of faith who loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was a person who prayed for her family and others. Her family rejoices in the peace she has found. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. - 1 Corinthians 15:57 (ESB)
