William C. (Bill) Ziegler-1984

     Final rites for William (Bill) Ziegler were Saturday, March 3, 1984, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Bethune at 1:30 p.m.  Rev. Michael Greenwalt officiated.  Song selections included "Going Down The Valley," "Church in the Wildwood," sung by the choir; "Abide With Me," "Jesus Savior Pilot Me," by the congregation and "Let Me Go" by Alvin Strobel.  Casket bearers were Roger Weisshaar, Ronald Weisshaar, Rodney Ziegler, Stuart Ziegler, Blaine Hines and Darwin Stolz.  Burial was in the Immanuel Lutheran Cemetery north of Bethune.

William Christian Ziegler passed away on Feb. 29, 1984, after a long convalescence at Grace Manor Nursing Home in Burlington, He was born on Nov. 13, 1900, at Claremont (Stratton Colo. to John and Christina Ziegler, who immigrated to this country from Russia in the late 1800's.  John and Christina also raised nice other children:  Lena, Anna, Emma, Elma, Esther, Fred, along with Richard, Clara and Otto who have preceded William in death.  William was raised on the family farm north of Bethune, and resided in the area farming until he retired in 1963.  At that time, he and his wife, Hulda, moved their residence to Burlington.  William was baptized into the Christian faith at Immanuel Lutheran Church on Dec. 9 1900, and was confirmed in April, 1917.  He was united in marriage to Hulda Stahelcker of Bethune on May 4, 1924, at Immanuel Lutheran Church.   Both William and his wife Hulda were faithful and active members of their church, with William in his younger years serving on numerous committees of the congregation.  One of the many things William is fondly remembered for by the congregation is the many years he and John Adolf operated the refreshment stand on Children's Day.
