Jane K. Zimmerman, 89, of Sunbury, passed away Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017, at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.

She was born in Sunbury, a daughter of the late Roy G. and Maude (Duttry) Rettinger. She married Robert C. Zimmerman on April 5, 1947, who preceded her in death on Nov. 4, 2006, breaking a martial union of 59 years.

Jane was of the Lutheran faith. She graduated from Sunbury High School in 1946.

She worked at several stores in Sunbury, later working for Wilsons Manufacturing, Westinghouse, and retired from JPM in Lewisburg.

Jane was a kind, thoughtful and giving person.

She loved the outdoors, hiking, camping and vacations at the shore with her family.

After retiring, you could always find Jane outside in her yard, taking care of all her beautiful flowers.

Jane had a love for all animals. She rescued many dogs and cats over the years and gave them good homes.

She was a member of "SUN PETS" and also volunteered at "Mostly Mutts".

Jane was survived by several cousins and their families.

In addition to her parents and husband, Robert, she was preceded by one brother, Terry Rettinger; and one sister, Bonnie (Buck) Rettinger.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to SUN PETS, P.O. Box 64, Lewisburg, PA 17837.

To honor Jane's wishes, there will be no services.

Arrangements are by the Jerre Wirt Blank Funeral Home, 395 State St., Sunbury.
