Zona was born Jan. 1, 1941, at Klamath Falls to William Thomas and Mary Lucille Cutshall Taylor. She was the second daughter in a family of eight children. She came from a large family that was proud of their Native American Heritage and was a member of the Madesi Band of the Pit River Tribe. She was raised in North Powder, where she met and married Larry Pratt in 1957 in Haines. They were later divorced. In 1975, she moved to Dayton. She attended the Church on the Hill in McMinnville. The family said, “The joy she found in life was her children and grandchildren, and she came from a very strong and close-knit supportive family.” She loved music and played the piano and accordion by ear.

Survivors include her sons, Ken “Scott” Pratt of McMinnville, Jim Pratt of Melba, Idaho, Curtis Pratt of Dayton, Ray Pratt of McMinnville, and Shawn Pratt of Dayton; daughter, Crystal “Daunn” Harvel of Dayton; brothers, Gary Taylor of Lincoln City, Ore., Larry Taylor of Yamhill, Kenneth Taylor of Wells, Nev., Paul Taylor of Portland; sisters, Mae Cropp of Valdez, Alaska, Nina Cropp of Dayton and Pat Jarvis of LaPine; and 21 grandchildren.
