Horst, of Lancaster; and Glenda S., wife of Jay K. Sensenig, of Denver; nine grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; a brother: Warren, husband of Gladys (Holsinger) Zimmerman, of Denver; sisters: Irene, wife of Clarence Stoner, of Fairmount Homes; Mabel, wife of Irvin Sensenig, of Stevens; Violet, widow of Edwin Good, of Denver; and Jane, wife of Abram Burkholder, of Farmersville.
She was preceded in death by three brothers: Chester, Lloyd and Irwin Zimmerman; and a sister: Bessie Zimmerman.
Funeral services were held May 9 at Ephrata United Zion Church with pastors Jay Showalter, Mel Horst and Mark Weaver officiating. Interment followed in the Hahnstown United Zion Cemetery.
