Betty R (Wolcott) Zeiger

July 26, 1918 ~ June 13, 2019 (age 100)

Betty R. Zeiger (nee Wolcott), 100, went home to be with the Lord on June 13, 2019.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, John; beloved parents, Francis and Florence Wolcott; and two wonderful brothers, Bryan and Frank.

Betty was the dear mother of John Zeiger (Cheryl), Tom Zeiger (Sharon) and Susan Ruple (George).  She cherished her six grandchildren and was blessed with five great grandchildren.  She was a gracious and caring friend to many.

Betty’s life’s work centered around food. Throughout her career, she was a dietician for General Electric, co-owner of the Welshfield Inn and a Home Economics teacher in the Tallmadge City Schools. She loved to sew, travel and take pictures to assemble in albums for all to enjoy. Deteriorating eyesight robbed her of her ability to participate in these pastimes.  During her last 10 years, she faced total blindness with acceptance and courage.

A celebration of Betty’s life will be held on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at the Donovan Funeral Home, 17 Southwest Ave., Tallmadge, OH 44278.

The family will receive friends beginning at 10:00 a.m. with a service following at 11:00 a.m..
