Leslie A. Zuelsdorf, 69, of Mayville, unexpectedly, passed away October 14, 2019, at Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital in Oconomowoc.
She was born September 1, 1950, in Waukesha, the daughter of Edgar and Kathryn (Atkinson) Price.  She was raised in Waukesha and graduated from Waukesha High School (now Waukesha South).
She graduated from Doctors Hospital School of X-Ray and was a X-ray technician.
She married James Zuelsdorf on August 1, 1970, in Waukesha, and then made Mayville their home.
With no opportunities to be an X-ray technician in Mayville, she worked as a clerk at the Coast-to-Coast  and later Ace Hardware stores.  She also had the privilege to be hired at St. John’s Lutheran School in Mayville.  First as an aide, then after she completed more schooling, she became the four-year-old Pre-K teacher.  She also developed the three-year-old Pre-K program. She served there a total of 31 years.  She drew students from as far away as Oakfield, Horicon, and Hartford.
Beyond loving her immediate and extended families, she loved each and every child she had the honor to teach.
Since leaving St. John’s, she has spent her time spoiling her three grandchildren.  She fiercely loved her family and would do anything for them.  She was close to her sisters and their families, spending time at the Price family camp at Seul Choix Point, Michigan. She was most happy when she was surrounded by those she loved.
Leslie is survived by her husband of 49 years, James Zuelsdorf; her daughter, Lisa (Ed) Hirnschall and their son Noah; her son, Michael Zuelsdorf and his daughters, Madeline and Charlize; her sisters, Nannette (Ben) Loucks, Renee (Tim Sr.) Harris and their children, and Michelle (Gary) Metzger and their daughter; her mother-in-law, Rosemond Zuelsdorf; brother-in-law, Thomas (Patty) Zuelsdorf and their children and sisters-in-law, Jill (Craig) Borgardt and their son, and Heidi Luehring and her daughter; her aunt, Nancy Atkinson and three cousins, Mary, Cathy, and Jenny; her best friend, Sue (Roger) Williams, other family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; father-in-law, Jerome Zuelsdorf; nephew, John Borgardt; and brother-in-law, Lester Luehring; and uncle, John Atkinson.
