A Navy Wife

She lived in 40 homes, raised four children, "kept the books and made life rich in tiny nooks," her husband wrote a few years ago in a poem titled "Tribute to A Golden Partner."

You raised morale on many ships, solved many family problems on ocean trips.

"She was an important member of the official party, meeting with Navy wives, American and allied, helping them with their problems, raising their spirits, and calling my attention to many things I had no other way of finding out about," Zumwalt said of his loving wife, Mouza Coutelais-du-Roche Zumwalt.

From her obituary in the Washington Post after her death on 25 August 2005.
