Zelma Merle Stotts Fudge, 88, Adair County, KY (1931-2020)
Zelma Merle Stotts Fudge, 88, of Columbia, KY died Saturday, April 25, 2020 at the Summit Manor Nursing Home in Columbia.
Due to the Covid-19 virus and in accordance with Governor Beshear's orders and the CDC, there will be a private celebration of a life service for a life well lived and in service to others on Tuesday at the Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home with burial in the Roach Cemetery. Pastor Johnny Hood will be officiating.
She was born August 1, 1931, in Adair County to the late Wilbert Thomas and Mary Elizabeth Furkins Stotts and was the widow of her husband James Ordell Fudge who preceded her in death on October 5, 2009. She was also preceded in death by an infant son, Daryl Gene Fudge in 1949.
Mrs. Fudge was a member of Red Lick Missionary Baptist Church. She worked at Circle R during its earliest days, several area sewing factories including Lyon Uniform, Osh Kosh, and two different ones in Burkesville but found her calling in housekeeping at Summit Manor. Her job there was more akin to a ministry and she served in that role for 22 years until 2 broken wrists would no longer allow her to perform her job.
