Maryalice “Trig” (Moyer) Zebley passed into eternal glory on June 5, 2018, at the Rydal Park Presbyterian retirement home in Rydal. She was born on March 28, 1931, in Mifflin.

She graduated from Juniata Joint High School in 1950 and attended Maryville College in Maryville, Tennessee, where she graduated with a B.A. in Bible and Religion in 1954.

Following her husband’s ordination as a Presbyterian minister in 1955, Maryalice served faithfully alongside him in many congregations and church agencies throughout the country before their retirement to the Morganwood Presbyterian community in Swarthmore in 1991. Her life was a remarkable example of great devotion to God, church and family.
