Zetta Fincher, 85, of Corbin passed away Tuesday, November 12, 2019, at her home. Born March 2, 1934, in Grove, Kentucky, she was the daughter of the late Ancil and Mary Alice Gibbs. In addition to her father and mother, she was preceded in death by two sisters and nine brothers.

A highly creative woman, Zetta especially enjoyed crafts. She had a keen sense for taking something apart and creating a new product. She made many items such as doll clothes and pillows, but she was most proud of her quilts, making at least 30 over the years. Meanwhile, her love for children, her own and everyone else’s, brought a smile to her face.
