Joshua Steven Zellmer
Joshua Steven Zellmer was called to his heavenly home with family at his side on September 30, 2015. Though now in the safety of heaven he will be sorely missed by his loved ones. The son of Steven and Nona Zellmer, Josh was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on November 21, 1978 and that same day became a baptized child of God. Shortly thereafter Josh and his family moved to Fort Collins, Colorado where Josh enjoyed a happy childhood with his older sister Annie and younger brother Micah. He especially liked camping in the mountains with his family. In 1992 the family moved back to the Milwaukee area where Josh graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran High School. He received an undergraduate degree from Wisconsin Lutheran College in 2001. He also earned master’s degrees in history and library science from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Josh was privileged to spend a year in China teaching English as a second language at the University of Beijing. He worked in guest services at Discovery World in Milwaukee. Josh was an avid reader and could usually be found with a book in hand.
Joshua is survived by his parents, Steve and Nona Zellmer, sister Annie and brother-in law, Bill Holmes, brother Micah and sister-in-law Hollie, his nephew Everett and niece Chloe.
A memorial service will be held at Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church in Waukesha, WI at 2:00 PM, on Saturday, October 3rd. In lieu of flowers the family asks that memorials be made to either Trinity Lutheran School in Waukesha or Wisconsin Lutheran High School.
