Easter Sunday, April 12, 2009


Karl Edward Teigler, longtime Sierra Madre resident and volunteer, passed away Easter morning shortly after midnight.  Karl had been suffering and in pain due to cancer, according to his wife Ruth.

Karl had just celebrated his 94th birthday on Thursday, April 9th. He and Ruth would have celebrated their 67ththumb anniversary in June. "He was twenty-seven before I could catch him," said Ruth.  They were married in Rochester, N.Y. on June 27, 1942. 

Karl was born on April 9, 1915, to Fredrick and Marie (nee Kumph) Teigler, Buffalo, N.Y.

After graduating high school, he attended college. He worked for Picker Electric Co., selling, installing, and maintaining X-ray equipment. During the second World War, he worked with high-energy X-ray equipment in support of the Manhattan Project. After the war, and until he retired, Karl worked for the General Electric Co., residing in Tyler, Texas and then moving to Sierra Madre in 1963. After many years in Sierra Madre, Karl and Ruth, moved to Kokomo to be closer to their daughter.

In Sierra Madre, he was very active in the community. He served the city as assistant treasurer. He served on the National Committee on Aging. Karl worked on the Senior Master Plan and on the Youth Master Plan for the City of Sierra Madre.

He received awards from the County of Los Angeles on Older Americanís Recognition Day, May 11, 1994. He also received awards from the City of Sierra Madre for his work on the Senior and Youth Master Plans.

thumbthumbKarl was raised a Lutheran. After he married Ruth, he joined the Episcopal Church. He was active in church affairs. He taught Sunday School and was involved in establishing a new Episcopal Church in Tyler, Texas.

He was preceded in death by his son, Timothy, his parents, his sister and brothers.

He is survived by his wife, Ruth, now of Kokomo; his daughter, Dian Teigler, Carson City, Nev.; his daughter, Katherine, and her husband, Dr. James Scheffler, Kokomo; and his daughter-in-law, Louise Teigler, Carson City, Nev.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday at St. Andrew Episcopal Church. The family will receive friends after the memorial service at St. Andrew. A committal service and burial of Karlís remains will be at 10 a.m. May 9 in Sierra Madre.
