  • Simpathy to the family of my dear Aunt Gwen. I will miss our phone calls, letters & pictures. She was a loving aunt to me and my family.

    Bob, Lynn, Riley, Zach and Families: I would like to say how sorry I am for the passing of your mother and my Great Aunt. I remember her as a kind and soft spoken lady. You all are in my thought.

    Mrs. Zeigler (as I knew her) was a constant blessing to me as a 6 to 10 year old. She taught me how to appreciate animals, especially ducks and chickens. From her I learned my first lessons of predatory wildlife – weasels after chickens. Her attendance at the quonset hut Alliance Church on the corner of E Saar and S Central made a lasting impression on me as she sang the old hymns of the faith in congregational singing.
