I grew up in Crooksville and have many memories of the Zink Family. While visiting my Father (Leonard Dunwoody) at the Carr Center in Zanesville..... there was Clara. My sister (Diane Dunwoody LeRoy) told me that she might be there. I saw her and knew her right off. She loved to talk and visit with everyone and that day was no different. I feel really blessed that I got to see her after all those years.
