Zella Sobel: Wherever the road takes her

Wherever the roads have taken her through the years, Zella Sobel is loved, respected and cherished. She embodies all the traits humanity loves best. She is gracious, kind and generous to a fault.
Her familiar greeting on the telephone of “Hello, hello” is anticipated by all who know her, as is her parting goodbye to visitors, “I’m glad you got to see me.”
Zella has had a stellar and phenomenal career and reputation in catering in many parts of Texas as well as sending food as far away as California, Florida, England and Israel.
She was recently honored at a 90th birthday luncheon at Bent Tree Country Club given with love by her friends, Janet Beck, Carol Gene Cohen, Ann Levine, Cherie Small and Maxine Waldman. In lieu of gifts, donations in memory of Zella’s beloved husband were made to the Isaac Sobel Fund at Congregation Shearith Israel.
Zella has a wonderful, loving family. Her daughter and her husband are Marcia and Fred Fox. Their children are Marla Fox and Gregory Fox and his sons, Isaac and Evin. Her daughter Gail Golub is deceased. Gail’s children and their spouses are Jeffrey and Jeryl Golub, Leonard and Hannah Golub. Zella’s son-in-law, Steve and his wife, Cheryl, are the parents of her granddaughter, Jennifer and her husband, Ray Marcus. Her great-grandchildren are Isaac and Evin Fox and Orly, Olivia, Abigail, Asher and August Golub.
If you’re lucky enough to have a copy of Zella’s “My Favorite Stories and Recipes,” for sure it will be among your treasures.
We, at the Texas Jewish Post, add our best wishes to our friend, Zella Sobel.
