Zana enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She was an active member of the Orange Park and New Smyrna Beach Garden Clubs. She loved the outdoors and nature and could never turn her back on a stray animal. She supported various charities including the Salvation Army, Empty Bowls and K-9 for Warriors.
