A daughter of military parents, she was born in Okinawa, Japan, on Dec. 11, 1962, a daughter of Isaac and Patricia (Leubben) Yost.

As is common with military families, Zaneta attended schools in various locations throughout the United States. She graduated from Conestoga Valley High School, Lancaster, Pa., in 1981, and entered the U.S. Navy that year.

Leaving active duty as Petty Officer 2nd Class (AZ-2) in 1985, Zaneta remained in the Naval Reserve until 1987.

She was involved with Cub Scout Pack 86, and was an Odyssey of the Mind coach for many years. She loved camping, hiking, skiing, sailing and traveling, and was an avid cook and gardener.

Zaneta was preceded in death by her mother, Patrica Yost in 2011.
