Condolence From: Martha Biggers Huddleston
Condolence: I loved Mrs. Zetrouer Biology class. I will never forget the day in her class, when the announcement was made over the intercom that President John Kennedy was shot in Dallas. Mrs.. Zet was a wonderful teacher and inspired her students to learn. She shared some funny college days stories with us during class. On the last day of school, we walked to her house and enjoyed an ice cold bottle of coke during our class. This was a real treat. May God bring the family solace and comfort at this time. I am unable to attend service because I am out of state.

Condolence From: Paula (Reed) Kurjack
Condolence: Let me add my thoughts and prayers to the many shared with the family of Mrs. Zet. I was a student at PHS 1966-69 and was in Mrs. Zet's biology class. All the other students knew we were the lucky ones to have such a caring,inspiring,dedicated teacher. Having her son, Rob, in our class probably helped.She will be missed but always in our hearts.

Condolence From: Donna Rogero
Condolence: Family of Miz Zet,

You have my deepest sympathy. Miz Zet was my favorite teacher. I had her for biology and later human physiology. She had the gift of making a student learn and keeping it interesting with her wit and faith in our Creator!

Later I enjoyed being a member of Pilot International with her. She maintained her creative wit as president of Pilot Club of Palatka!

We were also fellow business owners on St. Johns Ave.

She was a joy to have known not only as my teacher but also as a person.

You have our blessings and prayers during your hour of bereavement.

Condolence From: Margaret Melzer
Condolence: I am truly heartbroken at the passing of this magnificent, brilliant woman, mentor, and friend, Mrs. Iva Jeanne Zetrouer. She was my favorite teacher who taught my favorite subject, Human Physiology. She was different because she was a true pioneer in the teaching and medical field. She had so much respect for her students and confidence in them that she even exposed us to material that was being taught in medical schools. Imagine how important that made us feel. She did not believe in boundaries where school curriculum was concerned, so that if students were capable of going above and beyond, she initiated their journeys. Her teaching model inspired me to do the same with students I taught.

Mrs. Zet even took us on a tour of the University of Florida College of Medicine and other field trips. She was a true advocate for women in the field of medicine.

I was honored to have visited her at her home in 2011 and told her that she was my favorite teacher and I loved her. The last time I got to utter those words were at a most sad occasion for her, the visitation for her late son, Lester. She could not speak but gave me a big smile. Rob's wife, Sharon, said Mrs. Zet was everybody's favorite teacher.

My father, Herman, is now 93 and grew up with her and her sister, Ila Jack. He also was born and raised in Palatka, as was she.

My father; mother, Elfriede; and siblings, Herman, Jr., and Ingrid Melzer Marleton (also her students) send our deepest condolences to you, Rob and Sharon, her grandchildren, and her devoted caregiver, Ms. Shelly Benson.

We know Mrs. Iva Jeanne Zetrouer is now in Heaven with her Lord, who is saying, "Well done, my Precious Child". We will love her forever.

Condolence From: Virginia McKnight
Condolence: I had Mrs. Zetrouer for Human Physiology. She was certainly one of my favorite teachers, and I remember being disappointed that I didn't get to have her for biology. I feel privileged to have known her.

Condolence From: Polly McCallum
Condolence: Mrs Zet was one of my most favorite teachers. She taught you to love science. Working at our church she always had an encouraging word for me. Sometimes she would just drop by and tell me I was doing a great job. That meant a lot. She never stopped teaching or encouraging me. She will be missed.

Condolence From: Andrea Trescot, MD
Condolence: Ms. Zet was an amazing teacher who inspired her students to be better than they thought they could be. She lead us through the workings of the human body, and I have yet to meet a medical professor who did a better job of explaining the workings of the human body
