Zeta was a gracious Christian woman. Her children provide that evidence. A teacher friend of mine said she will love the angels. I think the angels have always loved Zeta.

I loved co teaching with her when I got sent to Plain City she taught me things that I had over looked in teaching. She opened my eyes to ways to reach kids in different ways. I will always be thankful for those years of team teaching with her. I never met such a kind sole and loving person. My prayers are with the whole family. When we both had retired I loved running into her and hear her stories of family. The lord received a special angel.

I so remember Mrs. Holcomb from elementary school PE. I could not climb that darn rope that hung from the ceiling of the gym. She would catch my eye and give me an encouraging smile. Even though I never made it to the top, I remember not feeling embarrassed or ashamed because she always made me feel like my best was good enough. I have carried that through my life when things have gotten challenging and tried to teach that to my kids. She touched many lives and I am blessed to have been one of those. Love and prayers to her family.
