Delores was born on March 23, 1923 in Helenville, the daughter of Conrad and Violet (Zimdars) Hintermeyer. On August 28, 1943, Delores married LeRoy Zimmerman and the couple had 4 children. Delores and LeRoy enjoyed 48 years of marriage until his death in 1991. Delores was a homemaker and the wife of a hard-working farmer and factory worker. Delores enjoyed working on the farm and was a true animal lover. She appreciated God’s creation and took time to admire the flowers and birds but made sure she was home and inside by dark. She didn’t care for television but looked forward to listening to the Milwaukee Brewers on the radio.

She loved her grandchildren dearly and looked forward to their visits on the farm. Delores is a lady who will be missed by those who knew her.
