Happy 101st Birthday Ms. Zola

January 23, 2014

A native of Hanoula, Mississippi, Ms. Zola Myers turned 101 on January 16, 2013 in Milwaukee at the Golden Living Nursing Facility where she has lived since 2002, according to her niece, Dr. Louise Mormon, who said she has resided in Milwaukee as long as she can remember. Ms. Myers is the oldest of three children. She formerly worked at Douglas Air Base and as a nanny and later on as a housekeeper to actor Charles Bronson’s aunt. For a period of time, she did domestic work and she also worked for the Girl Scouts. She is a long time member of St. Mark AME Church. For this very special occasion, Dr. Mormon said Ms. Meyers enjoyed one of her favorite meals, which consisted of Kentucky Fried Chicken, potato wedges, cole slaw, cake, ice cream and soda pop.
