Lacy, daughter-in-law, Debra Lacy and grandsons, Joshua and Michael of Greer, SC, as well as her daughter, Rhonda Farrell and her son-in-law, Matthew Farrell of Woodhaven, NY and her sister, Paula Zuckerman of New York, NY.

Duane, Ben,and Rhonda, I was saddened to learn of Zeldas passing. I always enjoyed my time with you folks (although Im sure Zelda and Duane might not agree). She always brought a smile to my face and I always regarded you folks as the salt of the earth.
