OBITUARY ~ ALICE M. (BECK) ZISSLER

Alice M. ZISSLER died, at the age of 99, at her home in Minneapolis, Minn., on May 25, 2011. She was born in Kellerton, Iowa on June 27, 1911 to A. F. and Olive BECK. She was preceded in death by her husband, Alfred F. ZISSLER, whom she married in 1934. She met her husband at Iowa State University, where she studied landscape architecture. Gardening continued to be a major focus of her life.

She was a member of the National Council of State Garden Clubs, where she was bestowed the status of landscape design critic, emeritus. Alice and Al lived in Rochester for most of their adult years. They were members of Third Presbyterian Church. After raising four children, Alice became active in the arts. She began watercolor painting at the age of 60, specializing in floral arrangements. She was an active Women's Council member of the University of Rochester's Memorial Art Gallery, where she managed the gift shop for 12 years and contributed floral arrangements for the gallery lobby.

After the death of her husband, Alice moved to Minneapolis to live with her daughter and where she continued her 50-year membership in P.E.O, a women's philanthropic educational organization.

Alice's family consists of two daughters, Joanne (Glenn) SMITH of Minneapolis and A. J. ZISSLER of Boise, Idaho; son, James (Ellen) ZISSLER of Santa Barbara, Calif.; daughter-in-law, Mary Jo ZISSLER of Rochester; son, A. Ronald ZISSLER (deceased); six grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and one brother, Charles BECK of San Diego, Calif.
