Nancy Ann (Ludwig) Zahniser

April 9, 1931 ~ August 18, 2020 (age 89)


   Nancy A. (Ludwig) Zahniser, 89, of Sandusky, passed away unexpectedly early Tuesday morning, August 18, 2020, at her home.
   She was born in Sandusky, OH on April 9, 1931, to the late Dudley Ludwig and Delores (Abele) Ludwig Traver.  She married Ray Zahniser on February 28, 1953 at the Norfolk Virginia Naval Air Station.
   Nancy worked for Ohio Bell prior to her marriage.  She enjoyed the summers at Briarcrest Swim Club.  Nancy was the ultimate homemaker and loved baking and sewing.  Her desserts, especially her pies, were the best around.  She showed her affection for loved ones best by baking her specialties for them.  She will live in our hearts forever.
