The family will receive friends Wednesday evening from 5 – 6:45 p.m. at Joyner’s Funeral Home, 4100 Raleigh Road Parkway, Wilson.
Zura loved the Lord and other than her Lord, she loved her husband above all else. She had a unique gift of planning and decorating, which she did for many family and church functions. She was a true Christian, and she served the Lord with all her heart. She never wanted to be served, she lived to be a servant to many others throughout her life. She was especially a true “Servant to Jesus Christ!” Zura will be greatly missed and thought of often with wonderful memories.

Scott, Sr. of the home; stepson, Scottie Scott and wife, Stephanie of Goldsboro; step-grandsons, Spencer Beamon, and Brandon Scott; sister, Alice J. Hock of Franklinton; brother, Offie Joyner and wife, Laverne of Franklinton, and numerous nieces and nephews along with many extended family and friends, she was a special Mama to all.
