Obituary – Zelda Baldwin

Zelda Baldwin

Sunrise: October 15, 1932 – Sunset: September 29, 2021

Zelda Jean Kelly Baldwin leaves behind two children: Marsha Partee (Seattle, Washington) and Gary Knox (Cleveland, Ohio). She will be dearly missed by 3 grandsons, 13 great-grandchildren; 2 daughters-in-law; 1 great-great-granddaughter, many friends, and young women of her church that she faithfully mentored.

Baldwin will be cherished and missed by many. She wanted her loved ones to find comfort from these words: “Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free, I’m following the path God made for me. I took his hand I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all.  I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Oh yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full I’ve savored much. Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift your hearts and peace to thee. God wants me now – He set me free. I love you all.”

"From my perspective nothing has changed. Different means same results. Racism and prejudice are a part of the fabric that makes up human nature. Being an African American and enigma that we are makes us an easy target of hate."
