She was born Nov. 19, 1939, in Frisco, North Carolina, to George and Maggie (Whedbee) Austin.
Faith and family was her priority, and she loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Everyone who knew her was touched by her kindness and sweet personality. Zelda had the opportunity to travel the world as wife of Ben Hamilton, USN retired, and after moving to Virginia Beach, she worked hard as a real estate agent; a career she loved.

Her family would like to thank Sentara Hospice and the staff at Preferred Care at Home for the loving care that they provided.
