Donna Jean Ziegler, age 69, passed away on Sunday, Aug. 19, 2018, at home with her family after a long battle with cancer. Born in Englewood to the late Peter and Rose (Rizzuto) Muleucis, Donna lived in Bergen County before moving to Ogdensburg. A graduate of Franklin High School, Donna had worked in the maternity ward at Newton Memorial Hospital until she started her own family. In May of 1968, Donna married her husband of 50 years, Roger, and had three children. They lived in Newton, Andover, and Hopatcong before settling in Franklin, their home of 40 years.

In 1971, Donna began her career in restaurant service. In the 1970s, she and Roger worked the night spots in the Hopatcong and Morris County area. Later, Donna switched to family restaurants in Franklin and later in Newfoundland. She took great pride in being the best in her profession, giving both efficient and warm personal service. She retired after nearly 40 years to resume taking care of babies, this time her grandchildren. As every grandparent knows, our children are special, but our grandchildren are extra special.

Donna is survived by her husband, Roger; her daughter, Kirstin Sabo and her husband Bill of Wantage; her son, Keven and his wife Amy of Randolph; and her son, Kitch and his wife Christina of Franklin. She is also survived by seven grandchildren; Lexa, Kia, and Grayson Sabo; Mason and Clayton Ziegler; and Alexandra and Addyson Ziegler. She is also survived by her brother, Glenn Muleucis and many nieces and nephews.

Donna wished to be remembered first and foremost as a wife, mother, and grandmother who was devoted to her family.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Private cremation services have been entrusted to Pinkel Funeral Home, 31 Bank Street (Route 23), Sussex. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Donna’s memory to Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice, 99 Sparta Avenue, Newton, NJ 07860. Online condolences may be offered to the family at www.pinkelfuneralhome.com.
