Zimmer, John (12 OCT 1871 - 16 APR 1933)

Word was received here the first of the week of the death of John Zimmer, Sr., who passed away in the Town of Reseburg (Clark Co., Wis.), near Thorp, Sunday noon. Cause of death was pneumonia. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o’clock at the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in the Town of Reseburg, with Rev. F. Springler of Thorp officiating.

Mr. Zimmer was born Oct. 12, 1871 at Ontario, Canada and was 61 years, 6 months and 4 days old at time of death. In 1877 he moved with his parents to Neillsville, where they lived until 1880, when they moved to the present farm home.

In 1896 he was united in marriage to Miss Bertha Anna Schmidt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G.F. Schmidt of Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.). To this union were born five children, one of whom preceded him in death.

Besides his wife Mr. Zimmer leaves two daughters, Mrs. R. Daniel, Thorp, and Miss Alene, two sons, John Jr. and Robert, two sisters, Mrs. Herman Buss, Reseburg, and Mrs. Peter Deforth, St. Paul Park, Minn., and four grandchildren to mourn his loss.

G.F. Schmidt drove over Wednesday to attend the funeral services. The many friends of the Schmidts and the Zimmers join us in offering deepest sympathy to the bereaved ones.
