A life taken too quickly, Zilphia Tart became an angel in heaven on October 30, 2018.
Known to most as “Zee,” she cherished her family and supported her friends and loved ones endlessly.
Zee was the youngest of nine children. She was loved dearly by her 8 brothers and sisters as well as her 37 nieces and nephews. She was a graduate of East Carolina Teachers College and taught for many years at Claxton Elementary in Greensboro, NC, while making lifelong friends.
Zee was the devoted wife of the Honorable Jerry G. Tart (deceased) and mother to two daughters, Laura and Rachel. She treasured her sons-in-law Robert and Jack and was the proud grandmother of Hannah and Jackson.
Zee resided in Greensboro, NC for more than 50 years. In that time, she volunteered countless hours though Greensboro beautification programs, school organizations and her church.
