She lived a full and gratifying life consistent with her values of family, education, and independence. Sissy was born July 25, 1923, the middle child of Laura and Jacob Ziatz, and beloved member of the larger Sietz family, often noting that her several aunts were more like mothers to her and cousins were as close as siblings. Sissy was born in Toledo, a city she loved and lived in nearly her entire life, until she moved to Madison, WI to be near family. She spent most of her childhood living in the "duplex" on Delaware which was next door to her parents' neighborhood market and near her extended family and later moved to Birkhead Place when she was in high school.

Sissy and Sam Webne married in 1950 and enjoyed 32 years of marriage that included a family of 3 children, travel and service to the community. Sissy valued her organizational affiliations with Hadassah, Darlington House and membership in Temple Shomer Emunim. She served as past president and member of the local chapter of the American Dietetic Association and further offered her professional services in volunteer capacity to Darlington House and wherever her help was needed.

She is survived by her sister Maurine (George); children Deborah of Houston, Texas, Steve (Andrea) of Toronto, Ontario, Lisa (Harry) of Madison, Wisconsin and dearest grandchildren: Daniel, Sara, Jacob, Sam, Hannah, Michael (Katy), Geremy and Maya as well as great-grandchildren, and her many loving nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.
