Where Caring Is A Family Tradition
Terry J. Zeller passed away on Thursday, July 7, 2022, at home surrounded by family. She was born February 13,1952, to Donald and Mavis Longworth. Terry graduated from Winneconne High School in 1970. On August 22, 1970, she married John “Jack” Zeller. Terry's passion in life was her family, always giving of herself to help others. Earlier in life Terry and Jack enjoyed snowmobiling, motorcycle trips and always enjoyed the grandchildren's school events. Later they enjoyed camping at the Wisconsin State Parks until health problems ended that. For 28 years Terry worked for Homestead Mutual Insurance Co. as office manager. Terry will be remembered for her caring, gentleness and her beautiful smile which would light up a room.
Terry is survived by her husband of almost 52 years, Jack; two children, Corey (Kimberley) Zeller and Kim Zeller; seven grandchildren, Gracie Zeller, Abbie Zeller, Francis Zeller, Jovan Zeller, Jack Vernon and two foster children. She is also survived by sisters and brothers, Karen Fink, Jim (Colleen) Longworth, Penny (Dennis) Piper, Barb Longworth, Patty (David) Berndt, Kim (John) Clark, John (Kristen) Longworth, Judy (Tom) Schmude and Kelly Parish; and two brothers-in-law, Jim (Louise) Zeller and Dan (Kathy) Zeller.
Terry was preceded in death by her parents.
