   Liann Juaneece Swallow was born on August 2, 1949, to Holland and LaJuan Swallow in Longmont, CO.  Liann graduated from Lafayette High School, Colorado in 1967.

   On July 3, 1967, Liann married Danny Hagan.  They had two children, Melissa and Sean.

   On November 21, 1980, Liann wed her soulmate, William Zeller in Longmont, CO.  They started a new adventure together in November 1981 and moved to Walhalla, ND.  This is where they raised their four children together and made Walhalla their home.

   Liann had a love of life, family, friends, and her faith.  Her greatest love being her ten grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren.  Liann’s true passion became evident with her first job after moving to Walhalla.  She started working at the Neche Greenhouse.  This eventually led to her opening That Flower Shop.  She operated this business for six years.  She also worked for RMD Farms, Bjornstad’s, Variety Store and the Walhalla Chamber of Commerce.

   When Liann wasn’t spending time with her family, she was busy in the community.  It was apparent that she adored and loved what she did. Some of those included: Acting Elder at Park Center Walhalla Presbyterian Church; Gospel Theater for 20 years; Lakota Kennel Club; and Brush Bunch. She was deeply passionate about the Walla Theater renovation and enjoyed spending time every week with Jake Kulland, KNDK doing the weekly broadcast to share the News about Walhalla.

     Liann was lifetime member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars; Auxiliary #1771 located in Lafayette, CO; Auxiliary officer of American Legion Post 62, Walhalla, ND; and Order of the Eastern Star, Bathgate Chapter #74, Cavalier, ND

   Liann is survived by her husband, Bill Zeller; her brother Lynne (Donna) Swallow; her children:  Melissa (Bryan) Townley of Sawyer, ND; Doni Zeller of Reliance, SD; Sean (Stephanie) Hagan; Paul Wishard of Lead, SD; grandchildren: Derek Hiebert, Samantha Duchsherer, Brianna Woeller, Kimberleigh Jackson, Ashton-Leigh Holen, Chase Hagan, Kodi Zeller, Kole Zeller, Sydney Zeller, Jaeden Krumholz; twelve great-grandchildren: Justice, Claire, Sophie, Daisy, Waverly, Adrien, Kyren, Emily, Caleb, Maggie, Cade, Quincy; two nephews: Adrien(Rachel) Huffman and Taylor(Lauren) Huffman.  Liann was preceded in death by her parents Holland Swallow and LaJuan Swallow, and sister, Tauna Huffman.
