Obituary for Dorothy Myers

Dorothy Manning Zimmerman Myers, age 86, died Monday, January 14, 2019. Memorial service 11 am Saturday, February 9th, Woodlawn United Methodist Church, 431 S. Woodlawn, Derby. Dorothy graduated from Wichita North High School in 1950. She dearly loved her family, and enjoyed the blessings of many true friendships.

Dorothy is preceded in death by her parents, Phillip and Pearl Manning; husband, D.L. "Roy" Zimmerman, Jr. (Wichita d.1980), and, Bill F. Myers (Derby, d. 2015); along with her sister, Phillis Manning Clampitt (Randall). Survivors include: Children, Dee A. Zimmerman-Smoll (Dodge City), Debra L. Zimmerman-O'Quinn (Topeka), Dana M. Zimmerman (Wichita), and Darrel W Zimmerman (Columbia, MO); Grandchildren, Jesse Hodges, Jennifer Heimstra, Katie Ramsey, Molly O'Quinn, Roxanne Helmka, and Alexa Zimmerman; Great-grandchildren, Megan and Erin Hodges, Xavier, Alexander, and Quentin Heimstra, Madelyn and Caroline Ramsey, Amy Wilder-O'Quinn and Leann O'Quinn-Esslinger, and Estelle Helmka.

So many great memories of Mrs Zimmerman, as she was to me during my childhood. I especially enjoyed becoming reacquainted years later when her sister Phillis married my father. It has been great being step-related to a wonderful family.
