Doris Zimmerman

Doris Neumiller Zimmerman, 89, Bismarck/Roseglen, passed away peacefully Aug. 11, 2019, at Missouri Slope Care Center, Bismarck.

Doris was born Nov. 29, 1929, to John and Mathilda Neumiller at Bowdon. She married Robert (Bob) Zimmerman on July 15, 1952. They lived in Seattle, where Bob worked as an electrician until moving back "home" to N.D. in 1958, where they eventually took over the family farm at Roseglen.

Her love of life was punctuated by her faith, her love of people in general, her family, especially her children, grandchildren, and in later years, great-grandchildren. She also enjoyed gardening and farming. She will be remembered for a quiet, gentle spirit.

Part of her was forever missing when she lost her husband, Bob, in November 2003. She remained on the farm until 2005, when she moved to Bismarck to an apartment. In September 2011, she moved into Valley View Assisting Living, Bismarck. In March 2016, she made the transition to Missouri Slope Care Center, Bismarck, where she lived out her days.

She is survived by a brother, Richard, Fargo; and her son, Jerry (Tamra), Roseglen, and their children, Lance, Natasha, Jerad and Tonya; daughter, Judy Myers, Bismarck, and her children, Austin and Cody; son, Jim, Rapid City, S.D.; daughter, Connie Zimmerman, Bismarck; and her daughter, Jessica; and Bill (Katya), Dodgeville, Wis.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Bob; and sisters, Delores and Eileen.
