I purposely waited until now to write so the family knew that many are still thinking of them and care. Yes, Gerald lived a long life, but there never is a good time to say good by. My family joins me in extending our deepest sympathy to his beloved family. I am the little girl (She is 74 years old now!!!) who lived across the street from the Ziebells when they moved into their home in Brookfield in 1954. I have many fond memories of the family, but I will focus on Gerald. A quiet disposition accompanied by an ever present warm, sincere smile. Extremely skilled, he was always working on another project. I last saw him in 2011 when I returned for a high school reunion (I have resided in S FL for almost 50 years.)…at age 89 he was sawing porch rails! Sharp as ever, he recognized both my husband and me, even inquiring on how my husband’s business was!!! An amazing man!). And, of course, he loved trains! I recall a Sunday afternoon drive with the family to Friendship to view a train…and even better, Geralyn, Kevin, and I each got a brown bag of penny candy!!! (Sunday afternoon rides? Penny candy? Am I dating myself?! Ha!) My parents passed away at young ages, and over the years the Ziebells remained my connection to WI. I know it will continue with Geralyn. Again…our sincere condolences and love, Judy and family

We enjoyed having Gerry spend the end of his life with us. He always had a big smile each morning and never complained. When I hear a train whistle I will think of Gerry. May God Bless him and his family! Pat Sass

Gerald was one of the kindest people I have ever met. I always enjoyed starting my Sunday saying "Hi" to him in church. Prayers to his entire family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
