UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — Rosanne I. Klaus Ziegler, 73, died July 3, 2013, taking her last peaceful breath before being called home.
She was born June 5, 1940, to Ralph and Helen German Klaus, who preceded her in death. She was married for 37 years to Philip Ziegler, who passed away March 20, 2013.
Mrs. Ziegler was a teacher for Prince George’s County Public Schools for more than 35 years, and before that had taught in Kensington, Md., in the parochial school system. Watching sports was her way of unwinding from a long day. She had the ability to touch the hearts of anybody who knew her and will forever be loved and missed by family and friends.
Survivors include two children, Shaun Ziegler, of Woodbridge, Va., and Sarah Ziegler, of Upper Marlboro, Md.; a grandson, Shaun Ziegler Jr.; brothers, Don (Linda) Klaus, of Bluffton, Thom (Marikay) Klaus, of Corona, Ca., and Karen (Dana) Neider, of Huntsville; and many in-laws, nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by three brothers, Jon Klaus, Ron Klaus and David Klaus, and a sister, Mary Jean Kahle
A celebration Mass in her memory will be held at 11 a.m. Aug. 10 at St. Mary’s of the Assumption Catholic Church, Upper Marlboro, Md.
In lieu of floral arrangements, memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.
