A life filled with purpose began on October 24, 1922 in Alamance County to the late Mr. Preston Covington and the late Mrs. Hattie Hester Covington when they were blessed with a daughter in which they named Zulla Catherine.
She knew from day one, her life had purpose and God was the reason behind the purpose. Seeing the need for church membership she joined Green Level Christian Church. Although she and her family relocated to New York she never took for granted her walk with Christ and joined the Bethany Baptist Church in New York and worshiped there for over 40 years. Upon her and her husband relocating to Green Level, she began her tireless efforts to support the ministry again. She has served and served well in the following capacities: Emergency Club President, Senior Choir, Missionary Circle No. 1, Usher Ministry, Hospitality Committee, Pastors Aide, Youth Advisor and Intercessory Prayer Group member. She was devoted and her Missionary duties made her likened to a modern Day Florence Nightingale serving the sick no matter the time of day or night. What a blessing. Our mother was an excellent cook and baked some of the most delicious treats; oh how we shall miss her, her life, love and labor. Although she retired from Burlington Industries, she continued to work and sew beautiful garments for relatives and friends alike.
She leaves in God’s care: children: Oscar D. Covington (Portia), Frances Hylton (Wesley) and Dorothy Day; a granddaughter Sherrell Lea (Harry) whom she reared as her own daughter; 5 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren, 5 great-great grandchildren; 1 great-great-great grandchild; a sister Adean McBroom and several other nieces, nephews other relatives and friends.
On Saturday, April 4, 2015 she was welcomed into the presence of the Savior she now joins: her parents; her husband Charlie Edward Day and siblings: Otis Covington, Rosie Mae Covington and Farie Lee McBroom. What a joyous reunion they are beholding in the manifestation of the Master.
