Lois Ann Nyman (Zimmerman) 93, of Whitewater, Wisconsin passed away Thursday, May 23, 2019 at Fairhaven in Whitewater.

She was born March 23, 1926, in New Glarus, Wisconsin, the daughter of the late John C. and Anna Katharina “Katie” (Zweifel) Zimmerman. She married Lyle D. Nyman on January 15, 1947 at St. Mark’s Church, Dubuque, Iowa. He predeceased her on May 31, 1989.

Lois was a 1943 graduate of Palmyra High School and she started her career at the age of 17 at Palmyra State Bank.

Lois was later employed by Walworth County and then Door County as the Real Property Lister until she retired in 1990.

She is also survived by 15 grandchildren, 32 great grandchildren, 21 great great grandchildren, sister-in-law, Joyce Zimmerman, Palmyra, and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, and parents, Lois was predeceased by step-daughter, Linda Nyman, great grandson, Cory Lytle, brothers, Sylvan, Lawrence and Erwin Zimmerman and sisters, Viola Adams and Iona Turner.

We have such wonderful memories of Lois and Lyle. We had so many visits, and they were like family, and not just neighbors. We were truly blessed with their friendship over the years. We wish that we were able to attend the service, and pay our respects to all of you, but are unable to, due to health problems. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during these difficult times. We will always treasure our times with Lois and Lyle, and they will forever be in our hearts.

With Much Love,
John, Carol, Michelle and Michael Bartoszek
