Zimolka, Rachel A. GANSEVOORT Rachel A. (Rametta) Zimolka, 36, cherished wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend, passed into eternal peace on Friday, December 21, 2012 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Her loving family, including her beloved husband, Paul Zimolka, and daughter, Lucy, were by her side. Born on March 17, 1976 in Annapolis, Md., she was the daughter of Mary (Perrino) Rametta and Concetto and Lisa Rametta. Rachel attended Goshen High School, Plattsburgh State College and the University at Albany. She worked as community development manager for Sunmark Federal Credit Union. She was an active member in the business community, a volunteer with GeNEXT, and was named by the "Business Review" as a "40 Under Forty" award winner. Rachel's greatest joy came from her family, especially her daughter, Lucy. Throughout the course of her illness, Rachel remained profoundly optimistic and full of faith. She cherished every moment of life and always had a smile on her face. Rachel was an inspiration to all those who knew her, spreading love wherever she went, and always sharing her dear Nana's favorite saying, "Love you, I do!" In addition to her parents, husband and daughter, Rachel is survived by brothers, Thomas (Tracy) Rametta of Freehold, N.J., Benjamin (Anne) Rametta of Gansevoort, Robert (Michele) Rametta of Warwick, Michael Rametta, Matthew Rametta and Joey Rametta, all of Goshen; grandmothers, Lucy Rametta of Goshen and Carol Orza of Middletown; parents-in-law Gerald and Anna Zimolka of Scotia and sister, Melissa Zimolka of Halfmoon; several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
