Published on August 05, 2022


Boonville- Elinor (Capron) Zeigler, 87, of Carol Ave, passed away on the morning of August 4, 2022 at Sunset Nursing Home after a long illness. 

Elinor was born in Boonville on September 8, 1934 to Erlo and Susie (Clark) Capron, the youngest of their five children.  She graduated from Boonville High School in 1952, and was then employed at General Telephone Corporation of Upstate New York.  Elinor was united in marriage with Robert "Bob" Zeigler on February 27, 1954 at the First Methodist Church in Boonville.  Once their children came along she became a stay-at-home mother, but continued to assist in bookkeeping for her husband's business, Zeigler Collision.  After her children were in school she returned to the workforce at Lincoln National Bank, where she was employed until her retirement in the early 90's. 

Elinor is survived by her husband of 68 years, Robert; three children, Steven Zeigler, Chesapeake, VA, Scott Zeigler (Diane Gallo), Boonville, and Patricia (John) Brand, Alder Creek; five grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; as well as many extended family members.  She was predeceased by her parents, Erlo and Susie Capron, and siblings Harry Capron, Bernice Hayes, Clinton Capron and Norman Capron.

In keeping with Elinor's wishes there will be no calling hours.  Private funeral services will be held for the family.  In lieu of flowers donations may be made to your local animal shelter, as Elinor gave a home to many shelter and homeless pets over the years.

Arrangements are under the care of Mills Funeral Home, Boonville, NY.  For an online message of sympathy please go to
