Zeb Whitehurst Winslow, Sr., 97, passed away on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at his home in Scotland Neck.
Zeb, known affectionately as “Poo Pa”, was born in Scotland Neck, NC on November 29, 1919 to the late Nathan Ernest and Hattie Whitehurst Winslow. He began milking cows at age 12 and ran the first mule stable in Scotland Neck. Poo Pa owned and operated Winslow Diary and had the first peanut picker and dryer in the area. He has owned the family farm, Winslow Farms, for the past 90 years and it is still in operation today. His kind nature was known by all and the workers on his farm were treated like family, not workers. Poo Pa especially loved old cars and tractors, but loved his family and friends most of all.
In addition to his parents Poo Pa was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Lizzie Riddick Winslow; his sister, Sarah Winslow Bond; and his brothers, Ernest Winslow, Sherrod Winslow, Tom Winslow, Jack Winslow, and Lloyd N. Winslow, Sr.
Poo Pa is survived by his daughter, Trudy Winslow of Scotland Neck; his sons, Zeb W. Winslow, Jr. and wife Pat of Scotland Neck, Dr. Jack R. Winslow and wife Amy of Littleton, James Battle of Scotland Neck, and William Harrison of Scotland Neck; his sister, Ann Cox of Houston, TX; four grandchildren, Jason Winslow and wife Charity, Jamie Neill and husband Dave, Zeb Winslow, III and wife Anna, and Barbie Warren and husband Jason; and four great-grandchildren, Elizabeth Grace Neill, Zeb Winslow, Madison Warren, and Dallas Warren.
