Mildred A. Zeman

Mildred A. Zeman was born April 16, 1932 in La Crosse County Wisconsin to Eldor and Elsie (Niedfeldt) Horstman. She was a homemaker, which included skills of chef, seamstress, gardener, food
preserver, house designer, cabinet and trim finisher, as well as, supply manager. She recently said of gardening that it was where she felt the most peaceful and full filled. Her biggest regret was that she wasn’t the clearest communicator often having said things that did NOT come out the way she intended and having her actions misinterpreted as being mean or mad when she was trying to protect all parties involved.

She was a member of New Hope Methodist church for over 20 years.She married Harold F. Zeman on her birthday in 1953 in Bangor, Wisconsin.
She passed peacefully and quite quickly September 17, 2022 right where she wanted to be in her own home.
She is survived by one daughter, Lavone (Larry) Wiggert, two sons Charles (Janie) Zeman, Andrew (Esther) Zeman. Two grandsons Benjamin and Thomas Zeman. One sister Arlene (Dallas, deceased) Wegner. Two brothers, Delvan (Lanie, deceased) and Glen (Judy) Horstman. One sister-in-law, Helen Horstman.

She was preceded in death by both parents, husband Harold, an older brother, two younger brother’s Waldemar (Helen’s husband) Horstman and Verdel Horstman. Three sisters Elaine Garvis, Doris Reemer, and Delores Fisher. And, finally, one son Daniel L. Zeman. She will be with her husband at Pleasant Hill Cemetery as soon as possible.

She loved her family a lot more than she was able to express. Her wonderful blue eyes, her laughter and willingness to joke in spite of her physical discomfort will be missed, her ability to love her
husband dispite the very challenging nature of that will be forever respected and admired by Esther, her daughter-in-law, that spent the last 8 years caring for both her and her husband.
