Diana Jo (Zieger) Leeds

It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Diana Jo (Zieger) Leeds at age 83 on Dec. 26, 2019. Diana was born in Philadelphia and grew up in New Jersey. She moved to Phoenix in 1953, finished at North High and met her eventual husband, Ron, at ASU. After their marriage, Diana started teaching for a couple of years until they moved to Tucson where she was a stay-at-home mom. She returned to her passion of teaching for another 20 years in Tucson’s Catalina Foothills district. Diana proudly maintained relationships with many of her past students. After her retirement, Diana and Ron moved to Phoenix to be closer to family. They also spent their summers for 28 years in Coronado, California, which was Diana’s “happy place.” She will be missed. In lieu of flowers, the family asks you contribute to your favorite charity that benefits children.
