April 5, 1977 – July 15, 2023

Sarah Jane Zimmermann, age 46, of St. Cloud, formerly of Winsted, was welcomed home into Jesus’ loving arms on Saturday evening, July 15, 2023, after a courageous battle with heart disease.

She was preceded in death by her father, Ronald George Zimmermann, grandparents Len & Lou Zimmermann and grandmother Doris Karau, uncles Keith Karau and Richard Zimmermann, and aunt Barb Zimmermann.

She is survived by mother and stepfather: Kathy and Marty Hertzog; fiancé: Brian McGillivray; children, Joshua Zimmermann, Olivia Dodge and Nevaeh Dodge; sisters: Stephanie (Scott) Kennedy, Michelle Miller and Jenna (Jason) Hoekman; niece: Sydney Miller and nephews: Zach, Sam Kennedy and Parker Padilla.

Sarah graduated from Culinary School in 2014 and went on to enjoy a fulfilling career as the Dining Coordinator at The Glenn in Buffalo, MN.

There is no way to sum Sarah up with words. She had the biggest heart, brightest smile, indescribable caring nature and the greatest laugh. Sarah loved her family and had immeasurable love for her children. Of all the things Sarah loved she loved being a mom the most. She was a force in this world and left all those who knew and loved her better for having been in her life. She has left a mark here and in all of us. The greatest sorrow fills us all and she will be deeply missed.

A visitation will be held on Wednesday,  July 19th from noon until 2:00 P.M.   Funeral Service immediately following at 2:00 P.M. at Chilson Funeral Home in Winsted MN.

    My RAM sister. My leader. My friend. I’m absolutely heartbroken over losing you so suddenly. I want to wake up & it not be true & I’ll see on Monday like you said to me before I left work yesterday. You may have had a broken heart, but your heart was so big. I’m going to miss everything about you. Work will never be the same without you there. 12 hours today for you Sarah, cleaning like a crazy person just to keep busy & keep the tears at bay. I’m praying for your family. RIP you asshole (our pet name for each other)

    Sarah’s family,
    I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Although I never knew Sarah, I was a first cousin of her father, Ron, whom I always enjoyed visiting with. May your hearts be warmed by your memories of her in the days and years to come.
