Beverly Ann Zellmann, 77, of Plato

Beverly A. Zellmann, 77, of Plato, died Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2015, at Glencoe Regional Health Services Long Term Care.
A memorial service was held Sunday, Jan. 25, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Plato with the Rev. Tyson Mastin officiating.
Beverly Ann (Schmakel) Zellmann was born April 11, 1937, in Waconia, the daughter of Albert and Helen (Luebke) Schmakel. She was baptized and confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church in Waconia. She was a graduate of Waconia High School. On Nov. 30, 1957, she was united in marriage with Earl F. Zellmann at Trinity Lutheran Church in Waconia.
After Mr. Zellmann’s discharge from the military, the couple moved to Plato. Mrs. Zellmann has been a devoted member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Plato, and has volunteered whenever needed. She enjoyed watching and studying birds, camping, fishing, quilting and scrapbooking. She began every morning with the crossword puzzle from the daily paper. She loved to play dice games and cards, especially sheephead and rummy 500. She was crazy about sports and enjoyed the Twins, Timberwolves, Wild, Vikings, Gophers and the local high school teams. She kept track of and reported on all of the activity in Plato, which she gathered from the post office and her kitchen window.
Mrs. Zellmann’s life was focused on her family. She would cut out all the articles or highlights of her kids and grandchildren and cherished every visit and phone call.
She is survived by her loving family, including her husband, Earl, of Plato; children, Grant (Rachelle) Zellmann of Norwood Young America and Nate (Amy) Zellmann of Arlington; grandchildren, Jenna Zellmann and Allison Zellmann; sister-in-law, Bernice Kuchenmeister of Chaska; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many dear friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Helen Schmakel; sisters and brother-in-law, Elvira and Fred Henry and Shirley Lewis; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Raymond and Martha Zellmann, Rosella and Walter Neumann, Luella and Elvin Mueller, Lucille and Maynard Haag, and Robert Kuchenmeister.
