You think you have all the time in the world. You think some people will always be there...or maybe you just can’t imagine not having their presence. Zellamae Miles was one of those people for me. She was greatly respected and loved by all that came in contact with her and not just because she was Granddaughter of Susan Roop Arnold, Great Granddaughter of Isaac Roop.
I read in Readers Digest once “an elder dying is like a library burning down.” When my Mother died I felt as if my personal library burned down. When Zellamae passed I felt as if our community library lost a wing.
Seeing Zellamae was always a bright spot in my day. Her friendly smile, earnest way of speaking and knowledge of our community past and present drew us in. In a recent Facebook post Linda Korver said it better than I ever could “She is the real Susan in Susanville, our community had a foundation and every block was lovingly placed and cemented by Zellamae Arnold Miles”.
Our deepest sympathy to Zellamae’s family. A community grieves with you.
I don’t know all the details but understand there will be a service on March 24th.
