Lawrence F. “Larry” Zincke

Posted in Chatfield Obituaries

Lawrence F. “Larry” Zincke, 93, of Chatfield, Minn., formerly of Stewartville, Minn., died, surrounded by family Saturday, July 20, 2013, at Chosen Valley Care Center where he had resided three days.

Lawrence Francis Zincke was born Jan. 29, 1920. on the Zincke family farm in Pleasant Grove Township, to William and Ruth (Lloyd) Zincke. He graduated from Chatfield High School in 1937. On January 27, 1942, he married Margaret “Dolly” Jacobson in Chatfield. The couple lived on the family farm most of their married lives. Larry was extremely proud of the Zincke Century Farm which began in 1898 and is now being run by the fourth and fifth generations.

His faith was a big part of his life and he was a longtime member of the Chatfield United Methodist Church, serving on multiple boards, teaching Sunday school and singing in the church choir. He was also a 4-H leader. Larry served on the Pleasant Grove Town Board for 19 years, was a longtime member of the Pleasant Grove Cemetery Board, and was a school board member for the District 139 country school.

Larry was happiest when he was surrounded by loved ones, and he and Dolly enjoyed hosting many holidays and picnics for their extended families. His life was centered around farm, family and faith. He was a role model for all who knew him.

He is survived by his loving wife of 71 years and their four children, Ruth (Earl) Holets of Chatfield, Judith Weivoda of Chatfield, David (Amy) Zincke of Stewartville, and Kathryn (Pat) Hanson of Chatfield; 10 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by one sister, Lorraine Herrick and one half-brother, Russell (Bea) Zincke, all of Rochester, Minn.; as well as many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his stepmother, Frances Zincke, and brothers, Gordon, Frederick Erwin, and Raymond.

Larry and his family want to acknowledge the wonderful care he received at Saint Marys Hospital Francis 4C from the nursing staff and Dr. Hector Michelena during his recent hospital stay.
