Obituary for Joyce Marie Zimmerman

Joyce Marie Zimmerman, age 87, passed away on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, at the Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, SD. Joyce was born to Viola Marie (Petersen) Miller and Edgar Herman Miller at the home of her Gramma Petersen on February 22, 1934. She was confirmed at Sharon Lutheran Church in Lamberton, MN. Joyce graduated from Lamberton High School in 1952 and was the Senior Homecoming Queen. She took teachers training at Normal School in Lamberton. Joyce then taught children in grades K-6th at a country school in High Water Township, Sunny Hill District 3. Joyce married her forever love, Clifford Douglas Zimmerman on June 13, 1954, in Lamberton. He passed away on January 19, 2010. They were married 55 years.
The couple raised four children, Debbie, Jill, Chris, and Craig. The most important thing in life to Joyce was her family and God. Joyce enjoyed playing Pictionary and cards with family and friends, singing with the church choir and her Sweet Adelines group, playing scratch offs once in a while, and an occasional trip to the casino. She also loved doing paint by number sets, collecting Garfield and Miss Piggy memorabilia, and relaxed by reading to the grandkids.
Left to cherish her memory are her four children, Debbie (Jeff) Weber of Fairmont, MN and their seven children and four spouses, 21 grandchildren, and four great grandchildren, Jill (Ellard) Holmbeck of Olive Branch, MS and their three children and spouses, and four grandchildren, and two sons, Chris and Craig Zimmerman of Windom, MN.
She was preceded in death by her sisters, Margie Loose and Delores Roiger; brothers-in-law, Joe Roiger and August Rogotzke; daughter-in-law, Katie Zimmerman; three infant babies; her mother, father, and step father Truie Adams; grandparents; six Zimmerman brothers and five wives; in-laws, and many cousins and other aunts and uncles.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., followed by a Celebration of Life at 11:00 a.m., at the American Lutheran Church in Windom, MN. Burial will be in the Lakeview Cemetery in Windom, MN.
Benson Funeral Home in Worthington is in charge of the arrangements.
