Zola Ann Como, 1923-2017, age 94, was born in Weirton, WV. Her parents were Italian immigrants, Pedro and Giovanna Montani from Norcia, Italy.

In addition to her parents, she was proceeded in death by her husband of 50 years Gino Como and sister Lena Toni, brother in laws and sister in laws Nino Como (Christine), Louie Como (Katia), and John Toni.

She is survived by her daughters Linda Wilson (Terry), and Louise Como (Mike Cenker), grandchildren: Valerie Simeone (Tony), Douglas Wilson, Daniel Blatz Como (Kerrie), Lee Blatz (Angela). In addition, she leaves behind great grandchildren; Isaac Simeone, Taylor Corum (Matt), Addison and Andrew Blatz, and great great grandson James Corum.

She was a member of Lady Elks and the matriarch of this family. She spoke fluent Italian and was known for her elaborate meals. To mom, food was love, and she loved to feed us. Besides being a great cook, she was an avid card player, golfer, and loved to dance. Her failing health and continuous vascular strokes took her from us.

She received such great care from the best caregivers ever at Bethany Nursing Home. Many thanks to Beth Baum who could always put a smile on her face, Dr. Baum and Abby RNNP, and her long time physician Dr. Louis Shaheen. And hugs and kisses to the wonderful people at Mercy Hospice. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in the memory of Zola Como to St. Paul Catholic Church, Mercy Hospice, or the charity of choice.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday in the Karlo-Libby Funeral Home. Friends may call from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Interment will follow at Sunset Hills Memory Gardens.
