Mr. Zimmer was born in Ontario, Canada, on Oct. 12, 1871.

In 1896 he was married to Miss Bertha Anna Schmidt of Dorchester (Clark Co.). This union was blessed with five children, 2 sons, John Jr. and Robert, both of the Town of Reseburg, and three daughters, Ida (Mrs. R. Daniel of Thorp), Alene and Marie, the latter having preceded him in death.

Mr. Zimmer was well known in this community, having served as assessor for the town of Reseburg for twenty years.

Those who mourn his loss are his wife, Bertha, their four children, two sisters, (Mrs. Herman Buss of Reseburg and Mrs. Peter Deforth of St. Paul Park, Minn.), and four grandchildren.

Funeral services were performed by the Rev. F. Sprengler of Thorp, interment taking place at Sylvan Cemetery in the Town of Reseburg.
