Lozetta May Sundheimer

The world lost a sweet, lovely lady on February 2, 2022, as heaven welcomed her.

Lozetta May Sundheimer was born in Butler, on Nov. 15, 1928, to Charles and Iva (Richmond) Sucher into a family of eight. Zettie, as she liked to be called, had three children; Dina, Stanley and Gaye and lived most of her life in Wabash.

She was a scholar, voracious reader, a hard worker and a lover of animals. Zettie knew and trusted Jesus and loved everyone she met. She lived her life with a positive attitude and never said an unkind word. She was an Eisenhower Republican but changed parties when the Republicans changed their policies.

Zettie worked to support her family her whole life. She was employed at U. S. Gypsum in Wabash for over 25 years and following retirement from U.S.G., she worked at The Wabash County Hospital where she made many friends.

She is survived by two sisters, Helen Louise (Lou) Plant and Emma Bever; and Zettie’s three children Dina (Larry) Glass, Stanley (Jeanette) Sundheimer and Gaye (Jim) Haist. Six grandchildren Megan (Chad) Bradley, Katie Sundheimer, Jonathan (Carol) Sundheimer, Molly (William Ross) Strong, Sam (Katelyn) Haist and Ben Haist. Twelve great grandchildren Maddie and Brendon Glass, Phoebe and Jack Bradley, Violet, Thatcher and Winston Strong, Harper May and Quinn Sundheimer and Eden, Chloe and Norah Haist.

Zettie was preceded in death by her parents, her two brothers; Charles and Bill, sister Charline Bean and grandson Charlie Glass.

She always put her family first – believing that the greatest gift one could give to family was to spend time with them, listen to them, be caring and encouraging and supportive of their dreams. She loved to have fun and made sure to tell people that she loved them often. This is how she lived her life.

In lieu of flowers you could honor Zettie’s memory by donating to any Democrat candidate, an act she would have endorsed wholeheartedly, or you could donate to American Humane at to help give the gift of life to animals in need.

The family is planning a private celebration of life to be held in late spring.
