Alize Lucille Schugel was born Feb. 19, 1929 in New Ulm to Michael and Appolonia (Haas) Schugel. She attended grade school at St. Mary’s Catholic school. On Aug. 23, 1949, Alize was united in marriage with Robert “Bobby” Zeig at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in New Ulm. The couple was blessed with seven children whom together they raised on their farm in Milford Township where Bobby farmed, and Alize worked from the home raising the children. Besides her work on the farm, there were a variety of activities that brought Alize joy in life. Alize was blessed with a tremendous artistic gift for quilting and working with her hands as a seamstress. Many wonderful quilts and crafts will be cherished by all who had the honor of receiving them. Alize spent countless hours tending to her wonderful gardens in the summers helping produce vegetables for the family throughout the year. Known as quite the prankster in life, many laughs were shared enjoying her wonderful sense of humor. Alize shared her love for old time music with her husband Bobby, attending many dances and following where he played over the years. To relax, Alize could always find time to cheer for her favorite sports team, the Minnesota Twins. What brought her the greatest joy in life was time she got to spend watching her grandchildren grow, and playing with her great-grandchildren. Alize was known as a mother to so many people. She will be dearly missed by the many lives she touched throughout her life. Alize was a dedicated member of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in New Ulm where she was also a member of the Christian Mothers. Blessed be her memory.
Alize is survived by her daughters: Connie (Jim) Lindmeyer of Hutchinson, Cindy (Brad) Lewis of New Ulm, Sue (Steve) Prunty of New Ulm, Nancy (Tim) Griebel of New Ulm, Lisa Zeig of Pelham, Ala.; sons: Michael (Rosie) Zeig of Sleepy Eye, Steven (Colleen) Zeig of New Ulm; 10 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren; and sisters: Donna (Ambrose) Hoffmann of New Ulm, and Grace Fischer of New Ulm. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Robert “Bobby” Zeig; granddaughter, Alissa Prunty; sisters: Marcella “Sally” Rosas, Helen Waibel; and brothers, Harold and Eugene Schugel.
