Frances Lee Zielke (nee Britton), age 79, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, September 23, 2021.  She passed away at her home surrounded by her loving Family.


Frances was born September 25, 1941 in West Virginia.  She later moved to Elyria where she met the love of her life while she was in the 8th grade.  She married Herbert Zielke, raised their children and had a love story you can only dream of!


Frances enjoyed spending any free time making memories with family, especially her grandchildren.  She looked forward to the return of hummingbirds every spring, baking, making crafts, decorating for the holidays, having tea parties with her granddaughters, and was known for her homemade strawberry jam.


She is survived by her husband of 61 loving years Herbert C. Zielke, daughters Kimberly Kolcun of Lorain, Teresa Thomas (“AJ”) of South Carolina, Theresa Gallatin (Lance) of Collins, grandchildren; Jennifer Edwards (Victor), Ashley Eary, Dillon Howie, and great grandchildren Kaelan and Brynndal Edwards.


Frances was preceded in death by her infant son Michael A. Zielke (1961), her mother Roxie Martin and sisters and brothers.


A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
