Rosie Marie (Devine) Zimmer, age 84, of Waterford, PA passed away at home surrounded by loved ones on August 21, 2023. She was born on May 20th, 1939 at Hamot Hospital to Dayton Sr. and Nellie (Cole) Devine. She graduated from Fairview High School and married her husband, Bernie Zimmer, in 1958. They shared 61 years of love, faith, and family together. As a young woman, Rosie devoted herself to her family as a homemaker and essential part of the family dairy farm. She later worked at General McLane School District, where she worked her way up to the role of head cook; Rosie was a friendly face and a helping hand for generations of students before she retired in 2004.

As a dedicated member of her community, Rosie faithfully attended and volunteered at Trinity Lutheran Church, supporting the local county fairs, and cooking for the General McLane Broadway Dinner for 15 years. Rosie enjoyed bowling with her sisters in the Sisters Bowling Tournament, watching dirt track racing and playing cards with her family, and playing bingo with friends. She made time for the little joys in life and savored each moment; her family fondly remembers her gardening, taking long car rides, and stopping for ice cream. Rosie “Rosebud” lived her life in celebration of God and her family. 2 Timothy 4:7 “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith”.

Rosie was preceded in death by her husband, parents, brother Dayton Devine, son Kevin Zimmer, and grandson Jacob Hoover. She leaves behind her sisters: Joyce Brown and Linda Farley; children: Ron and Mary (Lenart) Zimmer, Dale and Diane (Mayer) Zimmer, Pamela and Morgan Hoge, and Sandy and Dale Furry; grandchildren: Ken, Jen, Keith, Chad, Garrett, Megan, Luke, Allie, Owen, Carla, Maria, Wesley, Jared, and Tyler; great-grandchildren: Benjamin, Aiden, Emberly, Jaxon, Charlotte, Linkoln; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
