    We will always remember the love and laughter from Zelpha! She was my “Ideal Lady” when I was inspired as a young girl by her service and her zeal for life. She was a blessing to our family!

    So very sorry to hear about the passing of Zelpha, she was a lifetime friend of our Mother Geneva (Watkins) Litherland. They met in school and were friends for life. Our Mother is not very well either so we are sorry that we cannot pay our respects to the family. But we will keep you all in our prayers. We will pray that God will be with you all and ease your pain in this time of great loss. She was a very good person. God Bless the Coy and Randall families.

    I have so many thoughts and memories flashing through my mind right now, my Great Aunt Zelpha meant so much to me. We loved sharing memories of our dear family whenever we were able to get together. My heart breaks for the family but I also rejoice in knowing how sweet her homegoing must have been! Zelpha was so very special to my life, I will miss her here on this earth but OH WHAT A DAY THAT WILL BE when we meet by the river of life! I will be unable to attend her memorial service but my heart and prayers will be there to cover the family. I Love You Aunt Zelpha!
