My grandma Zona was born April 21, 1925 to my great-grandmother, Lulu Pearl Brace. Lulu had her first child, son Bernard Floyd Hancock, in 1903 to her first husband, Nathan Hancock.

My great-grandmother then had eight children with her second husband, my great-grandfather, John Thomas Baber:
Henry Kessler Baber (1912-1988),
Frank Hazard Baber (1914-1986),
Bessie Pearl Baber (1916-1976),
Lois Beatrice Baber (1918-1979),
Lloyd Leo Baber (1920-2014),
Leon Calvin Baber (1922-1989),
my grandmother,
and lastly Cedric Keith Baber (1928-2008).

My grandmother Zona first married a man named Brinker which ended in divorce in about 1944. Then, she married my grandfather Ralph Bishop (1922-1984) on Feb 5, 1945. She had four children, three boys which are still living today, and a daughter, DiAnn Bishop (1952-2005). Ralph divorced Zona in 1971 and she married Eugene Reinhart and later, Jerome Gatley. Both of those marriages also ended in divorce.

She was surrounded by family and friends throughout her last few weeks before dying on Wednesday, October 4, 2005 after suffering 15 years with Alzheimer's disease.
