Obituary of Deanna Ziegler

Dee (Deanna) Ziegler, 81, of Sun City Center, Florida passed away May 27, 2021.


Dee was born on March 24, 1940, in Cincinnati, Ohio to the late Elmer and Helen (Miller) Metzner. She attended Our Lady of Angels high school in Cincinnati and graduated from Marian University in Indianapolis with a degree in English.


Dee worked in advertising and met her husband, Ron while they were both working at Scripps Howard. She was a devoted friend and neighbor who was always there to help.  She had a very sharp wit and a dry sense of humor so conversations with her always left people smiling.  She loved all animals but had a particular fondness for dogs, often volunteering to care for neighbors' pets when they were away.


Dee is survived by her loving husband, Ronald Ziegler; sister, Marlene (Charles) Norton; nieces, Nancy Schutte, Marie Cross, Cynthia Ziegler, Heather Ziegler; nephews, John Norton and John Ziegler, her loving dog, Julie and many extended family members and friends. She was preceded in death by her brother-in-law, Jack Ziegler.


A graveside service will be held at Sarasota National Cemetery on Monday, June 14, 2021 at 10:00 am.


In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Humane Society in Dee’s memory.
