Sarah L Ziegler

August 31, 1987 — October 14, 2023


On Saturday, October 14th, 2023, Sarah Lorraine Ziegler, loving wife, mother, sister, and daughter, passed away at the age of 36, after a valiant battle with cancer.

Sarah was born August 31, 1987, to Bernie and Jolene (Albers) Knox in El Paso, Texas. She spent most of her childhood in Rhinelander, WI. On October 4th, 2008, Sarah married her high school sweetheart, Christopher Ziegler, in Wausau, WI. Sarah earned her bachelor’s degree in education from UW-Stevens Point in 2010.

Sarah resided in Weston, WI with her husband and children. She devoted her life to raising her children and making memories with her family. Sarah enjoyed boating, camping, and traveling with her family. Sarah also enjoyed crocheting, sewing, and baking.

Sarah cared deeply for those in her life. She was a steady fixture at her kids’ sporting events, dance rehearsals, and recitals. Sarah put her whole self into everything that she did. Whether it was a birthday party, a holiday meal, a family vacation, helping her children through milestones—every detail was prepared for in an effort to allow others to thrive and shine.

Sarah was preceded in death by her mother, Jolene. She is survived by her husband of 15 years, Chris, her son Alex, and her daughters Charlie and Maggie; her father, Bernie (Nanette Grawey) Knox; her siblings, Ryan (Julia Cohen) Knox and Renae (Jonathon) Allen; her nieces Ellie and Carter; her in-laws David and Linda (Nowacki) Ziegler, and sisters, in-law Allie (Jacob) DeLonay and Taylor (Tanner) Gould.

A celebration of life will be held on Friday, October 27th, 2023, at Greenwood Hills Country Club—2002 Poplar Lane, Wausau, WI 54403. Visitation will be held from 1:00-5:00 p.m. with a sharing of memories to take place at 2:30 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Chris to provide financial support for their children’s future.
