  • Notes 
    • (From Waterloo Democrat 11-10-1905 p. 8 col. 4) John Zimbrich of Deansville bought a talking machine.

      2-21-1918 Countryman Article states that John Zimprich left last Friday evening for Racine Minnesota to visit his brother Dr. B. J. Zimbrich and family.

      9-26-1918 his mother obit, John was living on the homestead. In 1939 in Roberts obit., John was living in Waterloo.

      (From John's obit Waterloo Courier 3-26-1942.) He attended the Deansville school and later the Medina High School at Marshall. He then followed the carpenter's trade for some time, along with his duties on the farm where he lived.

      Mr. Zimprich held several positions of honor and trust in his community. He served as Town clerk of Medina four years and was treasurer of St. Mary's church at Marshall for 25 years, and for the past eight years has been affiliated with the Medina Mutual Insurance Co., being secretary of the company at the time of his death.

      He was a devoted husband and true friend, and was ever thinking of others even when his own suffering made it impossible for him to lend the helping hand of former days.

      In the passing of John Zimprich the community loses one of its most respected citizens.
