Tribute & Message From The Family


Phyllis May Zeimet, 80, passed away June 10, 2019, at Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa.

A memorial service will be held at 2:30pm on Wednesday, June 19, 2019, at Memorial Services of Iowa in Ankeny. A visitation will begin at 1:00 p.m., prior to the service.

Phyllis was born on February 24, 1939, in South English, Iowa to Willard and Mable Morris.

She attended high school at Des Moines Technical High School. She married John "Jack" Zeimet on October 31, 1959, and they were blessed with four children. After Jack's tragic death while serving in the US Army in 1966, Phyllis went on to raise her children alone. It wasn't until 2014 that she met the second love of her life, Clair Wepel. They enjoyed many hours at the Senior Center in Ankeny with friends, driving around the countryside, and lots of meals together in the evenings chatting about their favorite things; for Phyllis, they were her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her faith.

Phyllis is survived by her children; Matt (Vicki) Zeimet, Mark (Kris) Zeimet, Suzanne (Randy) Brekke, and Alicia Flemmens. She is also survived by ten grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren, Clair Wepel, and two sisters: Alberta Brannen and Carol (Roy) Rouse.

She was preceded in death by her husband (John), son (Michael), her parents, three brothers, and two sisters.

Memorial contributions may be made to Polk County Senior Center in Ankeny, Iowa, in her name.
