Zoe Anne Hauth, 86, Phoenix, AZ, peacefully passed from this life on April 7, 2021, into the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, after fighting the good fight. She was a woman of faith, a tenacious prayer warrior and intercessor for her family, friends, and so many others. Zoe was born on a cold, wintry day in 1935 on a farm in rural Missouri to Sidney Earl (Ernie)Robertson and Cleo Robertson. She attended Willow Springs High School and graduated with the class of 1952. She loved playing piano and singing in choral groups.
In 1954 she married the love of her life, Leland Hauth, and to this union three children were born: Mark A., Cary G., and Kimberly D. After she and Leland wed, they immediately left for Bremerton, Washington, where Leland was stationed in the Navy. After he was discharged, they moved to Rolla Missouri, where she worked as an administrative assistant at the Missouri School of Mines to support Leland while he was enrolled as a student there. Upon his graduation, Leland began his career with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and they moved to Arkansas, where their children were born. There Zoe began her high calling as a mother and homemaker, something she held close to her heart all her life. After their time in Arkansas, they returned to Rolla, where Zoe and Leland settled for some twenty years, and made many lifelong friends. Finally, they moved to Phoenix, Arizona to be close to their daughter Kimberly (and to get away from Missouri’s humidity!), residing at a retirement community.
Zoe had many interests in life including playing card games of almost any kind, trying new recipes (her banana pudding was par excellence), watching classic movies, and just being together with family. She enjoyed Bible study and playing the piano for small gatherings of believers. She was a rare example of kindness and humility in all that she did, and was a gentle servant of Christ in the truest sense of the word.
Zoe was preceded in death by her husband Leland Hauth, her parents, and her sister Dorothy Richardson. She is survived by her sons Mark (Wendy) of Nashville, TN, and Cary (Katherine) of Fargo, ND, and her daughter Kim (Joseph) Salamone of AZ. She is further survived by seven grandchildren, two great granddaughters and one great grandson; brother Earl (Wanda) Robertson of West Plains, MO; sister Kaye (Robert) Tipton of Willow Springs, MO.
A memorial service is planned for Zoe in mid-May, 2021.
