Neela Zinsser

Cornelia Perkins Zinsser, known by most of us as Neela, grew up in Boston, lived in New York, Virginia and New Jersey, and came back to Cambridge after her husband died more than twenty years ago. After twelve years in Cambridge, she moved to Carlton-Willard Village in Bedford, which is a wonderful place for retirees – near both city and country, full of interesting people and wonderful friends. As a P.K. (preacher’s kid) she has been interested in church matters most of her life and has found a good church home at Trinity, Concord, where she serves on the Outreach Ministries Committee. She cares a lot about inner-city programs that drew her into the Episcopal Church in her 30’s. She is still here in her 80’s.
