Obituary: Jacqueline M. Zierath

Jacqueline M. Zierath, loving mother, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones, Sept. 20, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Jackie was born July 30, 1946 to Myrna and Gregory Koenig in Chicago, IL. She married her best friend and love of her life, Robert L. Zierath on June 22, 1991.

Jackie was an avid reader and enjoyed planting flowers. She loved to nurture and care for her plants. Her absolute favorite pastime was spending time with her grandchildren. Jackie was fiercely loyal to her family and all those lucky enough to be a part of her life.

Jackie is survived by her husband Robert, her daughters Sandy Vrugt (Adriaan), Lisa Zierath (Joe), Michelle Niemeyer (Shaun), her beloved grandchildren: Madison, Ryan, Seth, Nicholas and Natalie, her sisters Margie and Kathy as well as countless nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers: Warren Koenig and Jim Koenig and one sister: Delores Koenig

Jackie will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts. A celebration of Jackie’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family asks that a donation be made to a local animal shelter.
