Times-News, Twin Falls, Idaho Sunday, 15 April 2007 Zelma Alvira Garrison- Twin Falls-- Our beloved Zelma passed away Aprill 11 in Twin Falls Care Center in Twin Falls, Idaho, at the age of 93, with family by her side. She was born March 28, 1914 in Kansas, Oklahoma, the fifth of 14 children to Albert James and Lora Mabel Waford Berg. Zelma had a beautiful voice and sang with Roy Acuff, but passed on the opportunity to become professional and tour with him. She married Oma Garrison on July 28, 1933 in Siloam Springs, Ark., and had eight children. They moved to Twins Falls from Harrison, Ark., in 1947. Zelma and Oma were married for 63 years until his death on June 20, 1986. She worked as a nurse's aide at Hazeldel Nursing Home for several years. Her favorite hobbies were sewing, quilting, crocheting and canning. Zelma was a wonderful cook. Her most requested item was her cornbread. Family was her greatest joy. She always called everyone over when company came. Preceding her in death are her husband, Oma and two sons, Emery Glen and Basil Oma. She is survived by her children, Alva (Dude) of Ontario, Ore., Lee Roy of Twin Falls, Wanda Fahrenholz of Orange, Calif., Curtis Garrison of Little Rock, Ark., Donna Armstrong of New Meadows, Idaho, Ronald (Ron) of Brinnon, Wash., two sisters Emma Klinert of Tulsa, Okla., and Ina Mae Smith of Colcord, Okla. She had 28 grandchildren, 52 great-grandchildren; and 11 great-great-grandchildren. She was well loved and we will miss her dearly. A celebration of Zelma's life will take place at 2 pm Tuesday, April 17, at Reynolds Funeral Chapel, 2466 Addison Ave., E. in Twin Falls. Burial will follow at Sunset Memorial Park. Friends may call from 6 until 8 pm Monday at Reynalds Chapel.

Note: It is this researcher's opinion that there was an error in the obituary. Zelma's father was Albert John Berg according to his application for a Social Security Number which was written in his own hand and his Death Certificate amongst other documents. Shannon Pope, Sept. 2010
