Her children, Kandi Dixson of Waverly and Kyle Dixson and his wife, Marsha, of Big Flats, as well as her grandsons, Cody (Gabby), and Casie, and her great-grandchildren, Madi, Marlowe, and Maxwell, will always remember their grandmother.

Zella was born in the Valley, and she obtained her diploma from Waverly High School in the year 1961. Zella went to school there until she graduated. She worked for the railroad for a considerable chunk of her career before deciding to pursue a nursing education at Corning Community College and eventually became a registered nurse. Over the course of more than 20 years, she was employed at the Robert Packer Hospital as a registered nurse.

She achieved a lot of success in the bowling world and was even inducted into the bowling hall of fame. Being a counselor and assisting those who were struggling brought her a sense of fulfillment. Her preferred travel companion was her husband, Dick, whom she had been with for many years. At one time or another, the Waverly American Legion Post #283 and the Waverly United Methodist Church counted her as a member of their respective organizations.
