Zoe Wiseman Byrd

Mrs. Zoe Wiseman Byrd, age 96, of the Pleasant Gardens community, went peacefully to her Heavenly Home on May 7, 2011 following an extended illness.

She was born in McDowell County on January 8, 1915 to the late Oseph G. Wiseman and Maggie Cresawn Wiseman.

A beautiful and faithful lady, she cherished her family and friends and will be lovingly remembered for her service to her church and community. She was a lifelong and much loved member of Pleasant Gardens Baptist Church. Her many interests included cake decorating, which she taught at McDowell Technical Community College. She worked at several local hosiery mills over the years and ultimately retired from Baxter Healthcare.

Her husband of over 60 years, Woodrow W. Byrd, preceded her in death as did her two brothers and four of her sisters.

Saddened by this loss are her two children, Diana McMinn and her husband Joe of Marion and Roger W. Byrd and his wife Kathryn of Winter Springs, FL; two sisters, Lola Webb and Pat Rhinehart, both of Marion; five grandchildren, Monica Dingman, Roger Byrd, Jr., Bo McMinn, Julie Brown and Andy McMinn; ten great grandchildren; a brother-in-law, Eunie Smith of Marion; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A service in celebration of her life will be held on Tuesday, May 10, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at Pleasant Gardens Baptist Church with Rev. Jerry Allen officiating. Her grandchildren Monica and Bo will also speak to the loving Christian testimony and influence Zoe had on the lives she touched.

Burial will be in the church cemetery.
