Tamarack City: Kathleen M. (Nuttall) Zimmerman, 81, of Tamarack Hill died on Friday, September 13, 2019 at Aspirus Hospital-Wausau, Wisconsin.
She was born on August 12, 1938 in Hancock, a daughter of the late Ronald S. and Agnes (Grandchamp) Nuttall. She graduated from Hancock High School with the class on 1956.

On May 27, 1966 she was married to Peter G. Zimmerman in Hancock. He preceded her in death in 2005.
Kathie always put the needs of others before her own, giving of herself, her time, or her baking, cooking, or crafts. Many dollars were raised for the local animal organizations by selling her crafts, mostly from her idea of making crocheted catnip mice. She was also an excellent gardener and enjoyed her time boating or at the beach.
Besides her parents and husband, she was also preceded in death by a brother, Ronald F. Nuttall.
She is survived by a son, Karl Zimmerman, a sister, Mary (Lonny) Nuttall-Naasko, a brother-in-law, Bob (Shirley) Zimmerman, best friend, Mary L. Klein, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Interments and graveside services will be held later at Forest Hill Cemetery in Houghton.
Her family would like to thank the Green Tree of Hubbell for their kind and compassionate care.
Memorial in lieu of flowers may be directed to her son, Karl Zimmerman, 51482 Conglomerate St., Calumet, MI 49913.
