Obituary For Georgia Ann Zink

Verona - Georgia Ann Zink, a longtime resident of Verona, passed away on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 at the age of 72. Georgia was the loving daughter of Kenneth and Loretta (Aberle) Zink. Georgia attended Sugar River Elementary School, Verona High School and had an Associate Arts degree from MATC. She worked for Satterfield Electronics for several years and then worked and retired from the University of Wisconsin-Madison after 30 years.

For many years she supported and worked for the Verona Cemetery Association and later for the City of Verona cemetery board. She also created an interactive blog and map of the Verona Cemetery graves for anyone to access and lookup grave locations. She enjoyed adding and updating Find a Grave memorials and was always willing to help other Find a Grave users. She was a passionate cat and dog lover (Megan, Sasha, Snickers and Dakota) and a longtime supporter of Angel's Wish Pet Adoption Center.

Georgia had many interests and was a very artistic and creative person. Her skill as an artist was really quite exceptional. She used to do flower arrangements for different events and she and her mother baked and decorated many cakes for just as many events. Other interests were RV camping, knitting, Nascar races, genealogy and watching reality programs. Her father was a volunteer fireman for Verona and Georgia was a strong supporter of the fire department.

One of Georgia’s final wishes was that she wished to thank Annette Stratman-Durrer, Ronald Wick, Ronald Vogt, and Richard Larson (who was like a brother to her) for all their help and support they supplied over the years.

There will be no service per Georgia’s request. There will be a private burial at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to ANGEL'S WISH, 161 Horizon Dr UNIT 106, Verona, WI 53593. To view and sign this guestbook, please visit:

    I echo Bob's sentiments that Georgia was part of a caring work environment with very special people. I didn't work directly with Georgia, but benefited from her creativity, talent, and kindness as she created the flowers for my wedding years ago. May she rest in peace, and may all those who knew her find comfort and peace in their fond memories of her. ~ Ramona Keyes

    Dearest Georgia: I thank God frequently for all the 'family folk' (e.g. DoIT) that I had the opportunity to work with such positive, creative thinking and work. May your soul rest in active peace, and may your mortal remains also finally rest. Respectfully, Robert A. (Bob and Marsha) Steffen P.S. Annette, and Care-Giving Family - thank you also, for being there for Georgia and sharing your active presence with her. May God walk walk with each of you.

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
