Ralph Charles Zielke

Mr. Ralph Charles Zielke, age 68, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Monday, March 14, 2011. For 41 years he worked in Middle Management for the U.S. Postal Service. Ralph had a special interest in local political discussions and was a regular attendee of the Cedar Springs City Council meetings. He was an avid gardener and especially loved flowering garden plants. Ralph is survived by his loving wife, Nancy Marie (nee Flynn); his daughter, Christine Marie (John) Greck of Howell; granddaughters, Caroline Marie, Andrea Colleen, and Brittany Alexandra; great-grandson, Forrest William Bentley; brother, Arthur (Bobbie) Zielke; nephew, Jason Zielke; and niece, Rachel Zielke. The service for Mr. Zielke will be Saturday, March 19, 2011, at 11:00 a.m. at the Pederson Funeral Home in Rockford, MI, with Pastor Tim Hall officiating. In honor of Ralph’s love for gardening, rather than cut flowers, a flowering garden plant that can be replanted in a memorial garden in his yard would be appreciated. Visitation for relatives and friends who may wish to meet with the family will be held at the Pederson Funeral Home in Rockford on Friday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Arrangements by The Pederson Funeral Home, Rockford www.pedersonfuneralhome.com
