Zelma May was born in Oklahoma in 1912 and married John May in 1931. The marriage failed and she was left to raise Delores, Duane, Juanita and Sharon. She became a Christian through the prompting of Boyd and Ruth Sisseck.

"Zelma was a devoted Christian throughout her long life and did her best trying to win people over to the Lord. She spent many hours riding the public bus system and would speak to folks of her faith. She had her favorite place to sit at church and was a familiar figure for 50 plus years." She passed away in 2005.
