Gerda Zimmermann has died © at the age of 69 mm
Gerda Zimmermann worked for Raiba Westkreis for more than four decades – and was involved in associations. She died at the age of 69.
Moorenweis – An assistant like Gerda Zimmermann is a lottery win for every boss – and not just because of her organizational talent and discretion. "She was a valuable link between the Board of Management and the employees and ensured a good working atmosphere," recalls Gerhard Früchtl, former member of the Board of Directors of Raiffeisenbank (Raiba) Westkreis Fürstenfeldbruck. "It was incredibly important."
When Früchtl started at Raiba in 1974, Gerda Zimmermann had already been there for two years. When he retired in 2003, she stayed in the house for another 16 years. "She was a veteran." For Gerda Zimmermann, working at the bank was more than just earning a living, the people there were more than colleagues. As early as January, she asked her boss about the date of the annual company outing in order to schedule her vacation so that she did not miss the day together with her Raiba family.

With her sympathetic manner, Gerda Zimmermann was popular with customers and colleagues. In addition to the secretarial work, she organized the annual painting competition of the Raiba, took care of guests of the bank and public relations.
Always a solution at hand
She was the one you went to when you needed a band-aid or help threading the ribbon into the typewriter. The good soul who always had a solution ready.
Gerda Zimmermann is also fondly remembered in the Raiba warehouse. From 2017 to 2019, she was responsible for accounting. "She got along well with the employees and maintained customer contacts," says former managing director Franz Drexl. Elisabeth Gailer describes her former colleague, with whom she worked for 41 years, as an "incredibly tolerant and trustworthy person". Even after retirement, the contact remained. Gerda Zimmermann regularly came to the regulars' table "Alte Hasen" at the Alter Wirt in Geltendorf.
In his hometown of Kaltenberg
For 50 years she belonged to the shooting club in her hometown of Kaltenberg, and for 40 years she sat on its board. "And she was also involved in all the other clubs," says son Michael Zimmermann. At the knights' games, she worked at the sales booth of the local associations. When there was nothing to do, the grandmother of three grandchildren went hiking in the mountains with a friend, preferably in the Bavarian Forest.
