Rev. Richard Ziehr and his wife, Connie, celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on August 25. They currently reside in Texas, although Rev. Ziehr’s entire ministry was in the Southern District.
Rev. Ziehr met Connie during his vicarage at First Lutheran in Baton Rouge and were married in that church (no longer in existence). They served five years at St. Mark in Baton Rouge (also no longer in existence), five years at Grace in Huntsville, and twenty-nine years at Good Shepherd in Shalimar. Upon retiring, Rev. Ziehr worked with the mission at Santa Rosa Beach. The Ziehrs moved to Texas in late 2006.
