Obituary

Patricia D. Zimmer, 73, of Sioux City, Iowa passed away peacefully on Monday, June 14, 2021, at her home surrounded by her family. Funeral services will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 19, 2021, at the Mauer – Johnson Funeral Home in Le Mars, Iowa. Father Shane Deman will officiate. Burial will follow at Memorial Cemetery in Le Mars. Visitation with the family present will begin at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 18, 2021, at the Mauer – Johnson Funeral Home. There will be a scriptural prayer service at 7:00 p.m. Visitation will resume at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday at the funeral home.

Patricia Diane Zimmer was born on May 12, 1948, in Sioux City, Iowa, the daughter of Earl Sr. and Georgia
(Smith) Sorgdrager. She attended country school prior to graduating from Le Mars Community High School in
1966. Following high school graduation, she began work at Hammer’s and later at Archie’s Waeside Restaurant.

On May 13, 1967, Pat and Don Zimmer were united in marriage at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Le Mars. In
1969, they welcomed their first daughter, Donielle, and later moved to Sioux City where Bill and Sara were
born. Pat and her best friend, Donna Sewell, provided years of loving in-home daycare for children in Sioux
City. She began her professional career at Bekins Distribution upon which she transitioned to First Financial
Bank and later retired from Security National Bank in January of 2021.

Her happiest times were celebrating with others and traveling with friends. She joined the Krewe de Charlie
Sioux in 2000, served on several courts, and was elected Court Queen in 2017. Pat traveled annually to Lake
Charles, Louisiana with the members of the Krewe to celebrate Mardi Gras. During the holiday season, Pat
would spend her time spreading the Christmas spirit with her special group of friends on “Elf Night”. These
friends would deliver gifts to the Ronald McDonald House, Opportunities Unlimited, local nursing homes, and
the pediatric units of the Sioux City hospitals to spread holiday cheer. During the week, you could find her
bowling with her league friends and baking cream puffs or other sweets for friends and family. Her most
precious moments were spent with her children, grandchildren, and closest friends. “Patty” left a mark on all
those who were lucky enough to know her. Being involved in her family's lives, she lived, laughed, loved and
danced like no one was watching!

Pat’s family wishes to extend a special thank you to the healthcare professionals at June E. Nylen Cancer
Center, St. Croix Hospice, Mercy One, Synergy Home Care, and Fresenius Dialysis for their loving care and
compassion.

Grateful to have shared her life is her husband of 54 years, Don Zimmer of Sioux City, IA; her children and
their spouses, Donielle and Greg Peck of Sioux City, IA, Bill and Tara Zimmer of Elkhorn, NE, and Sara and
Matt Morrow of Bellevue, NE; five grandchildren, Madison (Blake) Bogenrief, Ashlyn and Lauryn Peck,
Alexis and Jackson Zimmer; a brother, Earl Sorgdrager, Jr. of Merrill, IA; along with several in-laws, nieces,
nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
