Zella Knowles



Zella Matilda Derry (Hamllik Knowles)

On a bright spring day, of May 10, 1947, Zella Matilda Derry was born to Robert and Irene Derry, in Gettysburg, S.D.

Zella was the second of six siblings. Zella lived in Gettysburg until the family moved to Klickitat, Wash. In Klickitat, she attended school. Then the family moved again to Goldendale, Wash.

In Goldendale is where she met her first husband, Earl Hamllik. This marriage produced two children, David and Michael Hamllik, and later ended in divorce. Zella then moved to Lewiston, Idaho, where she met her second husband, David Knowles. This union also soon ended in divorce.

Zella would never remarry, but lived the rest of her life with her son, Michael, in Lewiston, until she was called away by the Heavenly Father on Jan. 4, 2014. Now she is looking down on all of us and smiling.

Zella loved her pets, friends and most of all, family.

We all love and miss you, but soon we’ll all be with you.

Love you Zella – Your friends and family
