March 29, 1934 ~ January 11, 2019
An adventurous soul, Asta traveled extensively, lived in England and eventually immigrated to the United States. She met the love of her life Donald Jaeger while working at The National Geographic Society in Washington, DC, from which she eventually retired. Don and Asta married in September of 1968. One of the greatest joys in Asta's life was being a wife and mother and she fondly recounted stories of her children and step children to anyone who would listen.
Asta was preceded in death by her parents and stepfather, her husband Donald, step-son Paul Jaeger, and beloved canine companion Sophie. Asta stayed in the home she and Don built in Olney, MD until she moved closer to her family in 2013.
Asta was a treasure to those who loved her and was a shining example of motherhood. Her heartwarming smiles and sparkling blue eyes will be missed by all those who knew her.
