Zane Zieman, 85, of Martin, S.D., lost his battle with cancer and passed away Monday night, January 26, 2009, at the Bennett County Hospital and is now with his Lord.
Zane, the oldest son of four children, was born to Charles and Winifred Zieman September 22, 1923, at Done Movin', the Zieman ranch 40 miles north of Hayes, S.D. He was baptized at age 10 into the Methodist faith at the "Little Brown Church" in Hayes.
Zane received his early education at home, taught by his mother, and later at the Hayes Grade School. Like his mother, he became an avid reader of books.
