Mom wrote a poem for us kids in 1982.
A Tribute to Our Five
To this union two lovely daughters,
Thank you, God, for fulfilling a dream.
The first of Miracles with God as our Father.
It just couldn't have happened because you're Supreme.
God gave us a son so tiny and sweet,
Heaven will reveal all the good that was done,
By taking his life in matter of hours,
To change the parents for the children to come.
The completeness of a family two wonderful sons,
Our prayer to God: His will to be done.
In the life of our sons, a Savior to proclaim,
We praise and thank you, God, in His Wonderful Name.
Of all the parents who have lived and died,
We are grateful for the reason unknown
To be honored and chosen by a Living God
To rear the children of Zaley and Clyde.
Mom passed away on August 6, 1996. I was told that when she took a turn to the worse on that evening, she had a visit from the minister. It was while the minister was praying that Mom breathed her last breath. That was in New Haven, Missouri, having stayed in the Haven Manor Nursing home for awhile. There she was close to Orena, her daughter, also living in New Haven. Mom's body was shipped to Siloam Springs, AR for services and layed to rest at Bell Cemetery, W. Siloam Springs, OK. She lays next to her husband for over 50 years, Lemuel Clyde Sanders, using the same grave marker.
Lonnie Lemuel Sanders is also buried at Bell cemetery, although up until Zaley died, there was no permanent marker. A concrete block marked his grave location. After Zaley died, a marker was ordered and placed at Lonnie's grave. Lonnie's grave is in the Northeast corner of Bell Cemetery (NE of Zaley's grave about 100 feet), near some Webb grave markers.
Zaley's last residence was: 603 Haven Manor, New Haven, MO 63068
