Victoria Zenfell

May 15, 2019

Addie Victoria Turner Zenfell, 99, of Moberly formerly of St Louis, died in the early hours of Wednesday May 15th, 2019, at Ravenwood Terrace assisted living facility. She was two months shy of her 100th birthday.

Victoria’s long and sunny life began on August 2, 1919 on a farm in Floyd, Virginia, to the union of Benjamin and Lourie (Bowling) Turner. Years later she married Woodrow W. Zenfell, a surveyor from Mississippi, when he came to work for the National Park Service on the Skyline Drive section of the Blue Ridge Parkway which was being constructed nearby. They raised three children, all of whom survive, although Mr Zenfell passed away in 2012. The children are Woodrow W. Zenfell, Jr, of St Louis; Jennifer Zenfell Fleming of Moberly; and Martha Ellen Zenfell of London, England. Also surviving are five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Victoria was a sweet, Southern lady who loved doing crafts, playing bridge and being with people. At big family reunions she and her two sisters would sit around and laugh uproariously all through the night, then dance the Virginia flat-footin’. Reunited now, the sisters are dancing at the feet of Jesus.

Memorial contributions to the National Park Service or the Gideons International would be appreciated.

A private committal service will be held at the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St Louis.
