Zina Yvonne Pettaway (also known as Zeek to her husband) was granted her angel wings on April 6, 2023. Although many believe that she left this earth too soon, we must remember it is the quality, not the quantity of life that defines us. In just the many years of her life Zina was able to touch and make a difference in the lives of many people.
Zina was born May 1st 1964 in Edgecombe County, North Carolina. She migrated to New York in 1985. Zina’s parents predeceased her in death. Zina worked at Sister of the Good Shepherd for over 20+ years. Zina had a good heart and loved working with people and it showed in her employment at Dominican Village for over 15 years. Through all of her hard work and dedication she was able to enjoy the American Dream of home ownership. In her free time she enjoyed drawing, cooking, listening to music and spending time with her children and granddaughter.
With Zina’s passing we remind other’s that her life is one to be celebrated, although we will miss her everyday, she will remain in our hearts forever. A human life is a story told by a higher power and with Zina a new chapter has commenced.
Zina leaves to cherish her memories, her Husband Gregory Jones Sr. ; Four children Laquanda Jones, Ashlee Jones, Rochelle Jones, & Gregory “Manny” Jones Jr ; Four sisters Ethel Coward of Amityville,NY , Terry Moore of Conetoe,NC , Mamie Battle of Conetoe,NC , & Ella Parker of Conetoe,NC ;
