She enjoyed a variety of crafts throughout the years, including leather crafting, quilting, ceramics, crocheting and making beautiful wedding cakes. She was also a member of a local homemaker’s club and relished spending time with her grandchildren.
She and Jim also enjoyed Alaskan cruises with longtime family friends.
Irma will be held lovingly in the hearts of her husband Jim, sons Kenny and Ben; daughter-in-law Kellie; grandchildren Kaycee, Krystal, Dyllynn, and Devon; along with her great-grandchildren and numerous other family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her father, William “Bill” R. Zerbst; mother Edna A. Zerbst; her younger brother Leonard A. Zerbst; and her beloved son, Dennis J. Wasserburger.
