Ralph’s Obituary Ralph Martin Zeigler (Goose Egg, to some) died July 29, 2019, at the age of 90, in his home in Greensburg, Indiana. Born in 1929 to John M. and Grace Marie Zeigler, Ralph was the middle of three sons. He worked at Cummins for 32 years, retiring in 1986. Ralph married Peggy Jane Clark in April 1950. They were married 62 years and had three children, John (Megann), Don, and Connie Zeigler. Peggy preceded Ralph in death in 2012, but during their marriage they danced, traveled, hit most craft fairs in the Central Indiana area, and resided in the home where Ralph died. After Peggy died, Ralph continued golfing, started dancing again, volunteered for Bread of Life, and hugged thousands of people (mostly women). At a recent party to celebrate Ralph’s life while he was still living, dance partners, card players, neighbors, family and honorary family shared stories of Ralph’s euchre chutzpah, love for dancing (which he continued to do until the last few weeks of his life), half-baked construction projects, and general and lasting joy for living. He was loved and will be missed by so many. Along with his three children and daughter-in-law, survivors include his grandchildren, Nick and Zack Simmonds; his beloved dog, Snorky; his brother, Don; honorary family Pam and Robert (Opie) O’Sullivan, Ben and Lauren Larson; and so many friends. Peggy and Ralph had their first dance together again in many years on July 29th. Visitation will be from 9:30-11:00 a.m. Saturday at the Porter-Oliger-Pearson Funeral Home in Greensburg. Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 3, 2019 at the Porter-Oliger-Pearson Funeral Home in Greensburg. Interment will follow in the East Hill Cemetery, Rushville, Indiana. Memorials may be made to the Our Hospice of South Central Indiana. Read More
