Zaz, as she was known to family and friends, had the most beautiful smile, infectious laugh and a zest for life. Zaz spent her life helping others by being of service to her God and the people about her. She carried the message of hope into jails and hospitals for over 30 years and she always had time to stop and to listen to those in need.
Zaz loved her garden and to travel. Zaz spent the last few years traveling with her spouse, seeing family and friends and experiencing life to its fullest. The last 24 days of her life were spent traveling throughout England, Wales and Scotland, a lifelong dream since she was a child. Each day was full of joy and amazement for her, just as a child experiences life for the first time. Her heart has come to rest in the ancestral home of Scotland. Her smile and laugh, the beauty of her life will always be alive in the flowers and gardens everywhere.
A celebration of life will be held June 29, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at Moody Methodist Church, 2803 53rd St. Galveston TX 77551. Please enter the fellowship hall-entrance on Ave U.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a local charity of your choice but most importantly give some of your precious time to others.
