    My sympathies to Zona's family. I worked for her at Sweet 16 in the early 70s. She was a great boss and had a wonderful sense of humour.

    My children and I wish to offer our condolences in the loss of Aunty Zona. She was always kind and thoughtful towards us. May you all find peace and comfort in the reflection of the happy memories of her. Love, Debbie Kerluke (nee: Hockey) & Children.

    My heartfelt sympathy to you all at this very sad time. My prayers are with you. Zona is gone but we have many dear memories that no one can take away. Zona was a dear friend since we were four years old. Her family lived close by giving us lots of time to grow up together. While picking strawberries and filling up our lunch pails to surprise our mothers with and chatting away we did not notice the big bear on its hind legs eating saskatoons not even three feet away from us. Our lunch pails flew as we ran, so no berries for our moms. We enjoyed skating, horseback riding, and making our own fun. Through out teen years getting jobs, with all the miles apart we never lost touch by calling each other, sending letters and cards. I was finally able to visit Zona in Grande Prairie a few years ago and she looked great. She said, I have your birthday card on the table and as she handed it to me she said, sorry I forgot to mail it. Bless her, I know she is now at peace and there is another angel in heaven. Love to all of her family. Verna Young (Jones)
