The Troup County Board of Commissioners announced Tuesday that Mrs. Zelma Brock, Active Life Specialist and Site Manager at the West Point Active Life Center, passed away Tuesday morning, at the age of 72.

Commissioner Chairman Patrick Crews said at the board’s Tuesday night meeting that Brock had had a long battle with cancer.

After many years of involvement in the Troup County School System, Brock joined the West Point Active Life Center, where she continued to serve the citizens of Troup County for 19 years, according to a press release from the county. 

“She was an amazing woman and an incredible asset to the West Point Active Life,” Active Life Director Dan Wooten said. “She did a tremendous job, and she was beloved by the community of West Point, who she knew so well.”

Troup County Parks and Recreation Director Lance Dennis shared the sentiment. 

“She was an extremely dedicated employee who loved to serve the seniors in our community,” he said. “Even with her health struggles and battles, she remained focused on her goal of continuing the growth of the Active Life Center in West Point. She will be missed but never forgotten by those of us who knew her and her passion for helping others.”
