Patricia “Pat” Ann (Kelley) Zollman, age 89, a native and resident of Scottsburg, Indiana, passed away on Friday, January 13, 2023, at her residence, surrounded by her beloved family.
She was born on June 14, 1933, to the late Charles B. Kelley and the late Iva (Broady) Kelley.
Pat was a longtime member of Scottsburg First Christian Church but loved to attend Fairview Christian Church, her childhood and young adult church.
Pat loved to sing at church where she sang solos, with the choir, weddings, funerals, and revivals, and sang with the Henryville high school concert band as they traveled. Many of the songs had props and characters with them that she would use.
She sang and performed at different yearly homemakers club events. She was most well known for singing “The Holy City”.
Pat worked for the old Wimpis out of Memphis, Indiana, Dimeco of Scottsburg, and Stewarts Funeral Home in Henryville and Scottsburg. She was a nurse for over 30 years and worked in private-duty nursing.
Her favorite was being a geriatric nurse. Very near and dear to her heart was Wonder Valley Christian Assembly where she was a true camper for over seventy years. She served as faculty, cook, teacher, nurse, and counselor.
She was a lover of books with many shelves full around her home. Pat loved all her children, grands, great grands and great-great grandson, loving each of them with her all, making them all feel like she loved them most.
She was born and raised in Scott County, living in town until the age of nine. At that time they moved to the county on the same land that her grandfather homesteaded.
When she married, she moved to Henryville until the early 80’s when she moved back to her childhood home. She lived there until her final breath on this earth.
Pat is survived by one son, David L. Zollman of Charlestown, Indiana. Three daughters, Kathie Eversole and her husband Jim of Avilla, Indiana, Ida McGuire and her husband Dale Sr. of Scottsburg, Indiana, and Kelley Spaulding of Henryville, Indiana.
