ARCHIE ZELLMAN Obituary

Arthur "Archie" Zellman, of Mora, passed away on Sunday, January 21, 2024 at his home.  He was 93 years old.

Archie was born on June 11, 1930, in Whited Township, Minnesota to parents Arthur and Mary (Weidendorf) Zellman.  He grew up on the family farm, attending Quamba schools for 8 years before finishing his High School diploma by correspondence courses.  On October 12, 1951, Archie joined the United States Army and served in the 101st Airborne Division.  He was honorably discharged in May of 1952 but remained in the Reserves for another 8 years.

Archie was united in marriage to Sonja Jensen on December 28, 1957 at the Calvary Lutheran Church in Mora.  They were blessed with 3 children.   Archie worked for several different manufacturing companies over the years including Blaw Knox, Brako, Mora Industries, Anderson IBEC, and Amoco/Sheller Globe before retiring.  During retirement, Archie took a part-time maintenance job at the Mora Medical Center for a number of years.

Archie’s love of sports started at a young age when he played baseball for Quamba for 15 years and 1 year for Hinckley.  In his later years, watching Twins Baseball was a favorite pastime.  He enjoyed hunting for deer and birds, and fishing on the local lakes.  Archie was a member of the Mora American Legion Post 201, Mora Lions, Jaycees, and a 66-year member of the Calvary Lutheran Church.  He also liked to garden and do woodworking projects. Traveling with family and friends included a trip to Europe, a cruise, and many trips out west including Las Vegas.   Most of all, Archie cherished his family and spending time with his kids, grandkids, and great grandkids.  He will be dearly missed.

Archie was preceded in death by his parents, sister Lorraine (Orville) Kobberdahl, and brother-in-law Floyd Jensen.

He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Sonja; children, Brian Zellman, Karen (Charles) Macomber, and Brad Zellman (Tonya MacGaren); grandchildren, Chelsey (Zach) Schwartz, Cole (Sara) Oosterhuis, Madelynne Zellman, Abigail Zellman, and Samantha Morine; great grandchildren, Athea, Emery, Archer, Anthony, and Autumn; sister Marilyn Jensen; brother-in-law Norman (Doris) Jensen; many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
