Zonie Faye Burnside Obituary
Burnside Zonie Faye Burnside passed May 12, 2017, at the age of 79, following complications from a stroke. At long last she is pain-free as she has risen to meet her Lord and Savior. She was a beautiful person inside and out. Zonie came from a large and loving family, The seventh child of ten. Born to Leslie "Leck" and Valuria "Babe" Donley. Along with her parents preceding her in death were two brothers Bobby Dean and Ed Donley, and two sisters Joyce Greer and Belva Kulifay. She was also preceded in death by her former long-time husband, Paul. Her remaining five siblings who will carry on her love of family are Elmer Donley, Paul (Lois) Donley, Mary Capehart, Deloris Barnhart, and Buck (Joyce) Donley; and dozens of precious nieces and nephews, and cousins. Zonie's legacy will be carried on through her loving children, sons, Jeff (Diane) Burnside, and Greg (Kim) Burnside; and daughter, Tracy (Burnside) Whited. She was the extremely proud grandmother to Chelsea and Danielle Burnside, Mark (Erica) Chronaberry, Lauren (Chad) Wamsley, Gina Burnside, Jake, Eric and Alex Whited; great-grandma "GG" to Samantha Ann Chronaberry and Emilee Eryn Wamsley. Also surviving is her special friend, Charles Allen, who brought Zonie great joy in their golden years. Zonie was first and foremost a God-loving Christian, an undeniably selfless woman, and a friend to everyone. She lived a rich and full life despite chronic back pain. Her spirit was contagious. She smiled and laughed a lot! The former high school majorette was a huge Buckeyes fan, especially the football and women's basketball teams. She sang and harmonized beautifully, played a mean card game, was an excellent cook, and she loved her sweets. She always thought of others' needs. May we all live more selfless and compassionate lives in honor of Zonie's life. Visiting hours will be held at SCHOEDINGER FUNERAL HOME, 5360 E. Livingston Ave. on Thursday, May 18 from 5- 8 p.m. Funeral service will be held at Eastview United Methodist Church, 1045 Ross Rd, Whitehall, on Friday, May 19, 2017 at 11 a.m. You could honor Zonie by making a donation to your favorite nonprofit cause or her beloved Eastview United Methodist Church, where she was an active member for more than 40 years.
