The tragic news of Zoe's passing came just days after her family confirmed that she had been involved in an accident.
"Zoe had an accident Thursday night, February 10th, & sustained severe damage to her brain/brainstem & is in a coma," the family wrote on her Instagram.
At the time, they also shared a fundraising page for Zoe's medical bills, which has received over $41,000 in donations.
The donations were also going toward resources for Zoe's daughter, the family said.
"Unfortunately the doctors are saying the damage cannot be repaired & that she may not have much time left."
The family begged Zoe's 25,000 followers for prayers, however unfortunately later confirmed that she did succumb to her injuries.
Weeks before her untimely death, the beauty queen had shared messages of hope on her Instagram account.
She captioned one shot of herself wearing a red top with a quote she said was by Joan of Arc.
"One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying," Zoe wrote on January 18.
Many of her 25,000 Instagram followers have left messages honoring Zoe.
"Her beauty, her grace, her heart… a stunning woman that would stop everyone in their tracks. May she rest peacefully," said former Republican congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik.
"I am so sorry for your loss," added conservative commentator Tomi Lahren.
Zoe was also a conservative commentator and worked in collaboration with Project Veritas and Charlie Kirk's Turning Point USA.
She was the current Miss Alabama for America, not Miss Alabama, as they are two different organizations.
