Zada Gibbs Harvell died March 30th, 2016. There will be no great biographies of her time here on earth. Nor will Historians remember her in prose. However, to the ones that knew her or ever met her, she will be remembered always. She was the rarest of God’s creations. The sonogram of her heart not long before her death showed an enlarged heart. Well, anyone who knew or ever met her knew that. Her heart had always been larger than a mere mortal’s heart. She could touch your heart with a smile or simple word. Family meals when all her babies were there were her favorite times. People from across this country and other countries all over the world prayed for her during her short illness as she prayed for so many during their times of stress and heartache.
When she was young she was a tall beauty with long legs that walked fast. Still somehow Donald Harvell caught and Married her. It is rare to see a photograph without the two side by side. Thank goodness he could dance, otherwise their 3 children, Jeff, Brandie and Raymond, 8 Grandchildren, and 9 Great-Grandchildren wouldn’t be here today. If you are younger than 16 and reading this we’re talking about Boo-Boo. Frances, Jane and Ray her two sisters and one brother will always remember that big heart. She is reunited now with her sister Nina and her parents Raymond and Martha Jane.
Loving, caring, forgiving, hardworking only begin her attributes as a great person and a God loving human being. Her family and friends know she has left to join her mother, father and sister to prepare the way for them.
