Zenobia Remble

October 20, 1928 ~ November 10, 2018 (age 90)

ZENOBIA REMBLE, affectionately known as “Zee”, was born on October 20, 1928 in Dumas, Arkansas. She was the youngest of four daughters born to loving parents, John and Patsy Hursey.

During the 1930’s, The Hursey Family relocated to San Diego, California, where Zenobia and her family united with Logan Temple A.M.E. Zion Church. There, she accepted Christ at an early age and was very active in the church ministries. She sang in the choir and was also a member of Varick Christian Endeavor.

Zenobia attended and graduated from San Diego High School. Afterwards, she enrolled at Livingstone College in Livingstone, North Carolina for two years.

Upon returning to San Diego, Zenobia began working in the hospitality industry. She retired after twenty years of exemplary service.

After retirement, Zenobia found that she could not sit still, so she began working at Petco Park and San Diego Stadium’s concession stands during the Padres and Chargers games. Due to health concerns, Zenobia retired from Petco Park and San Diego Stadium when she was well into her early 80’s.

Zenobia loved her family unconditionally. She also was very outgoing, had a wonderful sense of humor, straight forward and to the point, yet caring and loving. She enjoyed playing bid-whiz. She would often tell those playing against her, to go get a crying towel, because they were going to need it, after she get through beating them to tears. She enjoyed life to the fullest and in her eyes, she was the greatest bid-whiz player ever! She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Zenobia was preceded in death by her husband, Clarence Remble; her son, Hilliard Broadnax, granddaughter, Tausha Broadnax; both of her parents and two sisters, Versie Matthews and Mertice Parks.

On Saturday, November 10, 2018, Zenobia Remble was called from earthly labor to eternal rest. She leaves to cherish her memory, her sister, Doree Nunley of Los Angeles, California; grandson, Rayshone Broadnax (Tosha) of San Diego, California and a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends, including her Logan Temple Church Family.
