Zelma Jane (Cross) Logsdon

Zelma Jane (Cross) Logsdon, of Apopka, Fla., was welcomed into heaven Sunday, Feb. 23, 2014, after long and multiple illnesses.

Zelma was a lifelong resident of Vienna, W.Va., but had resided in Florida with her daughter since 2009 due to health issues. She was born Feb. 9, 1935, to Francis L. (Shields) and Ray M. Cross in Parkersburg. Zelma lived an exceptional and admirable life. She belonged to the Degree of Honor, also was a member of The Fraternal Order of Eagles/Ladies Auxiliary and was a Republican Committee Woman member. She was a devoted homemaker, mother, and had a 30-year career as a caring, dedicated and gentle caregiver to many couples and individuals in the Parkersburg area. Her love for caring for others made her truly a blessing for any patient she came in contact with. While she loved good conversation, good food, and people this was only surpassed by her devotation to her family. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, and aunt, and always there when needed.

Zelma is survived by her daughters, Debra A. Owens and Brenda Snider of Florida; six grandchildren, Randy S. Goudy, Angela D. Emrick, Kenneth Ray Sasser, Mariah (Jane) Snider, Harold (Trey) Snider III and Shawna L. Ash; one sister, Marie Flint; two brothers, William R. Cross and Samuel Cross. She was preceded in death by her parents; four brothers, Donal, Robert, Paul and James Cross; and three sisters, Myrtle Arthur, Donna Defrietas and Hazel Lyons; and numerous nieces and nephews.

There is no doubt that Zelma’s love of family and people will remain present with all who were blessed to have known her.

A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held 1 p.m. March 29, 2014 at the United Methodist Church, 1801 7th Street, Parkersburg, WV.

“Ladies” feel free to wear your favorite shade of Red Lipstick to the service in her honor.
