Edith Viola Gertrude Walther Zoch (9/22/1922-4/29/2014), loving Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, and Sister went to join her Heavenly Father on Tuesday, April 29, 2014.

Edith was the first of eight children born to Albert Walther & Alma Zoch Walther on a farm outside of Warda, Texas.

Edith married her loving husband, Fred Carl Zoch, on January 12, 1943. Even though they had lived about 15 miles apart growing up, they met for the first time in the Lubbock, Texas area.

After WWII, Fred was honorably discharged from the US Army and they moved to Houston, TX, where Fred began working as a carpenter and Edith set up housekeeping. Their four children, Donnie, Delphine, David, and Debra, were born and grew up in Houston. When Fred retired as a builder, they moved to their farm in Gonzales, Texas. Both were avid farmers, raising all kinds of crops and livestock. Fred and Edith both eventually went back to work in town, Fred as a carpenter and Edith as a seamstress, later retiring from the Gonzales Bank at the age of 70. Fred passed away on September 16, 1980. He had been planning a birthday party for Edith, but The Lord took him home before he could throw the final celebration. Following Fred's passing, Edith continued to reside on the farm for the next thirty years, but returned to the Houston area approximately five years ago.

Edith was loved by all and will be deeply missed by her friends and family.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, May 1st from 6-8PM at Memorial Oaks Funeral Home on I-10. Services and internment will be held on Friday, May 2nd at 3pm also at Memorial Oaks Funeral Home and cemetery on I-10.
