Elizabeth “Betsy” Zeek became the newest member of the Second Wind Hall of Fame  (SWHF) recently, when she was sponsored for induction by the Tryon Estates Retirement Life Community.
Zeek moved to the Thermal Belt area more than five years ago and immediately became a very active volunteer in service organizations.
In Tryon Estates, she was a member of the resident services committee and the spiritual life committee, teaches Bible study and assists the chaplain with services. For Tryon Presbyterian Church, Zeek is a frequent liturgist, a Sunday school teacher, writer for the newsletter and rings in the bell choir. For Hospice of the Carolina Foothills, Zeek visits with the bereaved, is the historian and is a support group participant.
Zeek graduated from Montclair State College in New Jersey in 1961, with a bachelor of arts degree in social studies, education and math, which led to a career of teaching remedial math.
Zeek and her late husband, Bill, had two children, Elaine and Becki. Elaine and her husband, Richard, live in Burlington, N.J. Becki and her husband, Lou, live in Fredon, N.J., with their children, Cassi and Braeden.
When not otherwise involved, Zeek enjoys crosswords, needlecrafts and gospel music. Her sponsors said she is a splendid example of a dedicated community servant and a lady of strong, steady faith in her Lord and Savior.
The Second Wind Hall of Fame is a Thermal Belt organization whose mission is to recognize and celebrate dedicated community volunteers who, in retirement, have caught a “second wind“ of service to mankind.
