Jean L. Zeigler, 91, of Willow Street, passed September 10, 2022. She was born to the late Homer and Elva Lenker in Millersburg, PA. Jean earned an associate degree and she worked as a secretary at Hamilton Bank, Wilson Southern Junior High School, and United Church of Christ at Valley Forge.

She was exceptionally talented when it came to crocheting. She loved to make prayer shawls and made countless ones for her church. She made them for her children and their spouses and her grandchildren. Jean loved to cook, particularly her much loved holiday stuffing. She made many cookies for Joseph’s Table. Each Christmas season, she loved the tradition of the Zeigler family cookie baking gathering. Jean also liked to waterski at Lake Wallenpaupack, a place she shared many memories with her family. She enjoyed waterskiing all the way into her 60’s. She was dedicated to her faith and was a loving wife for 71 years, and a loving and dedicated mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.

Jean’s memory will forever be cherished by her loving husband Homer Zeigler of Willow Street; her children Diane Grande (Peter) of Phoenixville, Stephen Zeigler (Connie) of Hazelton, Michael Zeigler (Barbara) of Harrisburg and Pamela Weeber (Richard) of Lancaster; her grandchildren Jon, Tim, Jason, Amy, Jennifer, Katie, Sarah, Brad, Lexi, and Chris; and her great-grandchildren Lily, Sophie, Ava, Joshua, Camryn, Isabelle, Theo, Nathan, Anneliese, Mikko, Kiera, and Charlotte. In addition to her parents, Jean is proceeded in passing by her sisters Anna Mae Linn and Geraldine Shaffer.

About 30 years ago I was a cleaning girl for Jean Zeigler and was blessed by how she took time to chat with me, sharing life’s experiences in her expressive way. May the God of all comfort be with each of you who are grieving the loss of a very special lady! Loving regards to Homer, Pam, Rich and children.
Love & prayers, Vera Hursh

Please accept my condolences. My memories of the Zeigler Family go way back to when growing up at Governor Mifflin with Diane and Steve. And always wanting a 65 Mustang like the white one that Homer drove. The family will surely celebrate Mrs. Zeigler’s long life as a wonderful mother, wife, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to many.

Pam, Rich and family,  I’m so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I pray that God gives you comfort at this time. It’s so difficult to lose your Mom. I pray that the Lord provides peace and comfort to you all at this most trying time. Love, Stephanie and Emily Johnston
