    • Quite a pleasant surprise was sprung on his many friends here this week when word was passed around that Jay Zimbrick had taken upon himself a bride. The young lady is Miss Flora Maud Sullivan of Omro, this state. The happy event took place at the bride's home on Wednesday afternoon June 15, 1910 at 3:00 o'clock, Rev. Francis Dayton of the Episcopal church of Oshkosh, speaking the magic words which made them man and wife. Miss Ella Zimbrick, sister of the groom acted as bridesmaid, and the groomsman was Mr. John Sullivan, brother of the bride. The bride was attired in a cream silk and wool crepe grown. She is the only daughter of Mrs. P.O. Sullivan. The groom wore the conventional black.

      Light refreshments were served to relatives and a few friends after which the young couple left for Oshkosh and Milwaukee, thence for Lake Mills where they visited the groom's parents. Mr. and Mrs. E. Zimbrick. They arrived Thursday evening by auto.

      Mr. Zimbrick is among our foremost business men, being a partner in the Fox & Zimbrick meat market. May their pathway of life be strewn with sunshine and happiness is the wish of their many friends.

      (From Jay's obit in the Waterloo Courier 12-9-1937) J.D. Zimbrich Dies Yesterday. Prominent Waterloo Business Man; Had Been in Meat Market Business For More Than 30 Years.

      Jay D. Zimbrich, age about sixty years, one of Waterloo's most prominent business men, died suddenly at his home yesterday afternoon, shortly after one o'clock. Word of his death come as a shock as he had been assisting in the shop just a short time before he was stricken.

      Mr. Zimbrich had been engaged in the meat market business here for more than thirty years and was employed in that market before he bought an interest in the business. He is well known throughout this section of the state, not only by his business contacts but also through his Masonic affiliations.

      He is survived by his wife, Maude Zimbrich; and four sisters and five brothers.

      (From an article in the Waterloo Courier 5-19-1938) Zimbrich Market Changes Hands. Frank Doleshal, Marshall, Takes Over Business Here That Has Gained State-wide Recognition For Fine Meats.

      A deal was consummated here on Tuesday afternoon that resulted in a new ownership of the J.D. Zimbrich & Co., Inc., owners of the Zimbrich market that has gained state wide recognition since its organization 35 years ago. Frank Doleshal, Marshall meat market proprietor, and prominent in civic affairs in that community, has purchased the business and property which includes the market downtown and the slaughter house property east of the village and has assumed sole ownership. Mr. Doleshal was employed by the Zimbrich company from 1909 to 1914 and is well known in this community and this section of the state.

      The death of Mr. J. D. Zimbrich a few months ago and the poor health of Fred Wambold, one of the three proprietors, caused the owners to decide to dispose of the business. William Langer is the third partner.

      In 1903 the business was organized by the late J.D. Zimbrich and Emil Fox, three years after Mr. Zimbrich settled in Waterloo. Mr. Fox passed away in 1930 and Mr. Zimbrich purchased the Fox interests and organized the present company which included Fred Wambold and William Langer and until Mr. Zimbrich's death on December 8, 1937 the organization was operated by the stockholders, Mr. and Mrs. Zimbrich, Mr. Wambold and Mr. Langer. Mrs. Zimbrich served as president of the firm following Mr. Zimbrich's death.

      The Zimbrich market gradually gained recognition throughout the state for its fine meats, and two trucks have operated out of the village delivering meats for miles around. Travelers, tourists, salesmen and others, stop at the market time and again to pick up some meat items from a market that always has been equipped both with equipment and personnel to produce quality meats.

      Mr. Doleshal states that he will continue the business in the same successful manner as it has been operated in the past and will keep on the same employees who have been with the organization many years.

      What the plans of Mrs. Zimbrich, Mr. Wambold and Mr. Langer are have not been made known at this time, although Mrs. Zimbrich will continue to make her home here for a time at the wish of her many friends.
