Zelda Sally Massey 1927-2008
We rejoice that Sally, 80, has taken up residence in her new heavenly home with her Lord and Savior after battling Lewy Body Dementia. Also welcoming her home were her husband, two brothers, father, mother, and many relatives and friends.
Funeral services will be held at Cashner Funeral Home in Conroe on Wednesday June 18 at 10:00am. Visitation will be Tuesday June 17 from 5:00 – 8:00pm.
Sally was raised in Polk County,Texas and graduated from Livingston High School. Sally and Raymond Leveritt Massey were married on June 2, 1946. They lived in the Grangerland area for over fifty years. Throughout her life Sally was devoted to the Assemblies of God Church as well as being a faithful giver to missions overseas. Sally and Leveritt once owned the Grangerland Grocery store and she later retired from the Equifax Company in Conroe. She also was a member and past president of the Cut ‘N Shoot Auxiliary Club. A wonderful legacy she left behind was all the quilts she made and gave to those she loved.
Her love and encouragement of others extended far beyond her family as many people held her in their hearts.
She was proceeded in death by her husband Raymond Leveritt Massey (Dec 25, 1922 – May 24, 2001); father William Allen Walters (September 06, 1894 – May 19, 1940); mother Ida Mae Munson (February 19, 1903 – March 18, 1986).

The family would like to express their deep appreciation to Patrick Teich of Teigoroc personal care home as well as the staff of Hospice Care of the Southwest. We also will never forget the many acts of kindness shown to her by many of you.
