My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Zelma will greatly be missed by all who knew her.
My heart is very saddened to hear of Your passing! You were such a joy, a bright ray of sunshine every time I came to church and set down behind you. You always loved to turn around and chit chat, and tell Us funny things. I have certainly missed Your sweet face, and will forever hold You in My heart. Heaven is definitely sweeter since You arrived! Love You always...Keri and Landon
A kind and wonderful woman who will be remembered by many.

Know that our families thoughts and prayers are with you all. May she rest in peace and may the good Lord's Holy Spirit send y'all comfort in your time of grief.
Sister Armstrong or Armstrong as she liked to be called was like a mother to me and a wonderful friend. ,Armstrong, Sis. Baldree and I were always shopping together and when we would go out together I referred to them as my nursing home buddies which at the time neither of them were in nursing homes. We would have so much fun and laugh until our stomachs hurt. Armstrong talked me into buying the home I now own and she and her husband Alan hung the blinds in every window and any other repairs I needed at the time Alan made sure they were done. I feel as if a piece of my heart is broken and will never be the same again. She will be missed by me and so many others. She was the life of the party and her laughter was infectious. If you were sad and she was around it didn't take long and you would be laughing.. She is now in her heavenly home and I'm sure she probably has God laughing too. I love and miss you.
