Sympathy Saturday - George A. Zimmeth

From Brownsville Herald, Brownsville, Texas, obituary, 28 May 1944, p2c2:


George A. Zimmeth, aged 60 years, died in New Orleans Friday morning following an operation. The body will be forwarded to Brownsville, arriving here Sunday morning. Funeral services will be conducted from the Presbyterian church Tuesday at 5 p.m., under the direction of the Darling Funeral Home. Burial will be in Buena Vista Burial Park.

Mr. Zimmeth was born in Mankato, Minn., on Jan. 18, 1884, and moved to Brownsville in 1928, living here since then. He was a carpenter by trade and had been employed at the Brownsville shipyard until ill health forced his retirement. He was a member of the Carpenter Local Union, the members of which will act as pallbearers. Survived by his wife and daughter, Mrs. Marcel Sauber.


George A. Zimmeth was a first cousin to my grandfather Charles Zimmeth. George's father, Joseph Zimmeth, moved from Lancaster, New York to Iosco county, Michigan and eventually ended up in Minnesota.

His Find-a-Grave memorial is here
