Catherine died peacefully on Wednesday, July 31 at her home.  She was 102. She was born on April 10, 1917, in Wells, Minnesota, the daughter of Joseph C. and Minnie M. (Schultz) Staloch. Following high school graduation she went on to complete teachers training.  Catherine taught country school for a few years. On June 23, 1941, Catherine was united in marriage to Tony Zimney at St. Casimir’s Church in Wells. The couple lived in St. Louis, MO, for a short time, then on the Zimney family farm in North Dakota, before moving to Albert Lea in 1945. After raising 10 children, she remained devoted to them and their families. A “farm girl” at heart, Catherine loved drives in the country. She enjoyed long walks and playing cards with family and friends. She was an avid reader and was passionate about keeping up with the news, especially political happenings.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband in 2001 and 5 siblings.

Catherine was very warm hearted and caring. Her life was focused on strong faith and family.
