Zelma J. Nordel, a loving wife, mother, and Mema, was called home on January 25, 2017, after a four-and-a-half year battle with cancer. Zelma was born on September 7, 1932, in Center, TX. She loved to cook, sew, shop and spend time with family and friends. She retired from TU Electric, a job she loved. Nothing was more important to Zelma than her family and friends. She is survived by her husband, Bob, daughter, Judy Heitman (Ron), granddaughter Mendi McMahan (Ron), grandson Michael Heitman (Emily), great-grandchildren, Jake McMahan, Evan Heitman and Alexa Heitman. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister and brother and great-grandson, Noah. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Cancer Society.

Graveside services will be held on Wednesday, February 1, 2017, at 1:15 pm at DFW National Cemetery, Dallas, Texas
