Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Our precious, sweet mother, Alice Jean Zeigler, was born April 8, 1954 in Birmingham, AL., and went to be with the Lord on June 16, 2020. She passed in the comfort of her home in Duluth, GA., with family next to her. Mom joins her mother, Roberta Carrie Zeigler, and her brother, Michael Zeigler in the Kingdom of Heaven where there is no more suffering or pain. She is survived by her three loving children, Apryl Ziegler, Mushaun Williams, and Ariele Williams.
Those who met her, find her to be warm and welcoming, easy to talk to and eager to smile or laugh. There is not a joke too corny for her contagious laugh. Those who knew her can attest to her fierce love for her family and willingness to sacrifice all that she had for their well-being. And those so blessed to be loved by her will never know a stronger or more genuine, unconditional love. Nothing and no one will fill the hole in our hearts from the loss of our mother – we will feel sadness without her presence for the rest of our lives, and that is okay.
Mom is missed but never forgotten, as she is embedded into each of her children. She continues to love because she taught us how to love each other as she did; she continues to give because she showed us how to give, even in tough times; she continues to fight the good fight because she insisted that we always take a stand for what is right; and she continues to be hopeful and thankful because she kept us humbled before God and reminded us often that all things are possible through Christ. Mom continues to live through us as we continue to live in honor of her.
from Apryl: “Everything I am is because of you. God blessed me when He gave me to you. I am so happy I got to have you for as long as I did, and you live on through me. I will honor your hard work, memory, and name. This world is not our home, but only a place where we dwell for a season. I will see you again soon. I will cherish that day.” ~Apryl
from Mushaun: “You were a good mother and I will miss your laugh. I will always remember the time we spent together and will never forget everything you taught me. I love you always mom.” ~Shaun
from Ariele: “My dear sweet mom, you are gone too soon * I miss and love you from here to the moon * I don’t get to see that smile or hear that laugh * But one day I will again after I have passed * So, for now, I will just hold on to the memories of you that make me cry * And know you’re smiling down on me when I look up to the sky * God called his angel home and it’s so tough * For I would give anything for just one more hug * You were my mom, my first love, my best friend * You will always remain in my heart beyond the end * I hope to see you again one day and fall into your arms * from this day forward mom, I promise to make you proud *I hate that I have to continue this world without you * You were so loving and caring and wise * I am who I am because of you and it’s no surprise * Our bond will never be broken because of our soul ties * I am going to be strong, mommy, because that’s who you were * Thank you for everything you’ve done for me during your time here on earth * I will hold on to it forever and ever. I love you mom ~Airy
