Clotidle Aaron Zanders of Amite, LA

Clotidle Aaron Zander, one has to think in terms of memories. She was born in Amite, Louisiana, on December 27, 1912, to the late Mike and Maggie Bush Aaron. Clotidle was known for her love of house plants, beautiful yard, and dressing for church on Sunday. Her interest in plants was enhanced with a membership in the the Gladiola Garden Club.

She served the church as president of the usher board as well as the Willing Workers Club, Class leader of the Youth and later as Leader of Leaders. She was a gifted seamstress. She also fed many West Side students during her tenure as manager of the cafeteria for twenty seven years, finally retiring on June 2, 1978.

Her marriage on July 25, 1929, to her childhood sweetheart, Robert Zanders, lasted for 55 years, 8 month. From this union was born one daughter, Delores. She departed from this life on Tuesday morning, November 16, 2010 at her home.

She leaves to cherish her memories: one daughter, Mrs. Delores Z. Levy, Amite., A very special thanks to Mrs. Yvonne Collins for sharing the obituary of Mrs. Clotidle.
