Zadie Married William “Taylor” Fitch on July 2, 1955 and the couple moved to Columbiana County where they shared 47 years of marriage before Taylor’s death on April 7, 2004. The couple loved to travel and visited many states with their daughter, Teresa; grandsons, Joe and Kyle; sister, Sue and Niece Danette. The highlight of their travels was a trip to Hawaii with Danette and Sue.
