Maudie Lee Zellweger, 86, of Mesa, Arizona and formerly of Sioux City, Iowa, died on March 22, 2011. She was born on October 14, 1924 in Sikeston, Missouri to Minius and Clara Knight where she joined eight brothers and sisters.
Lee, as her friends called her, was very active in all aspects of her life at View Point RV Resort. After years of golfing, Lee decided she would try this thing called “tennis” and found her true sports passion. To see that tiny figure in her tights, tennis skirt and shirt on the court you weren’t quite sure what would do her in first — that huge tennis racket or the wind that would surely blow her over.
She will be remembered for her kindness to one and all, her willingness to help out whenever asked to do so, and her desire to make the most of whatever came along.
Survivors include her husband Donald Zellweger; her daughter Saundra Nelson of Mesa, Arizona; her grandson Tom Jones of Albuquerque, New Mexico; and three great-grandchildren Sari, Darby and Haydn Jones.
Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, April 4, 2011 in the Garden Room at View Point RV Resort in Mesa, Arizona.
