Zona Petty 1954-2016
On January 30, 2016 my wife of 41 years, the love of my life went to be with the Lord. She was born Jan. 2, 1954. Her last breath was at Del Webb Hospital in Surprise, Arizona.
She passed away from severe sepsis and septic shock due to an abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture.
She is preceded in death by her father Robert Howell, brother Ronald Howell, and her sister Michele (Shelly) Howell passed away Feb. 1, 2016.
We met in Spokane, Washington in 1973 and tied the knot in April 12, 1974. After military service we relocated in Terre Haute, Indiana where we lived until 1977 and moved to Chewelah, WA and lived there for 24 years. After that we lived in Anderson, Indiana and now in Surprise, Arizona since 2004.
After giving up trying to have a kid we were blessed with a son Jordan Robert Petty in 1991. God decided to bless us and man what a wonderful man but never having kids for 17 years and then along came the blessing, we quickly learned what it was like to raise a child! “Z” decided during the raising of our son to complete cosmetology school and eventually shared a business called Three’s Company in Chewlah, WA.
She leaves behind her loving husband, Danny Lee Petty of Surprise, Arizona and one son, Jordan Robert Petty of Surprise, Arizona. Her mother Sylvia J. Howell of Sun City, Arizona one sister Cindy Moore of Kennewick, Washington, many uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and some of the most wonderful friends she has made over the years! She will be missed dearly by us all!
I have lost my friend, love, boss, decorator, confidant, and mother of our child to a home in heaven where she is no longer in pain and watching over us all! We love you so much! Zona’s final resting place will be in the Greenlawn cemetery in Mountain View, Missouri.
There will be a celebration of her life at the Angel Garden Event Center, 116 N. Elm St., in Moutain View, MO. Family, friends, and all who knew “Z” are invited to join us and celebrate her life.
