SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Zena Weldon died Jan. 10, 2020. She was born April 9, 1940, in Bridgeport, Conn., to Elizabeth Chickvary and Daniel Edward Robinson. She lived near the shore until 1987 when she moved to Chester, Vt. and eventually settled in Springfield.
To explore her childhood pleasure and dreams, Zena began taking workshops in drawing and watercolor painting. She served on the board of the Saxtons River Art Guild in various offices and taught watercolor materials and techniques. In later years, she contributed to the guild as editor of its newsletter. Her paintings appear in private collections in Vermont, New Hampshire, Florida, Oregon, Michigan, and Canada.
In lieu of flowers, Zena requests you remember her by extending to others in your community and the world all the acts of kindness, forgiveness, and love you gave to her. She believed that the words “thank you” are both blessing and prayer.
A Celebration of Her Life will be held Saturday, Feb. 8 at 1 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church on Fairground Road in Springfield. Zena had a large and creative circle of friends and she will be dearly missed.
