YARMOUTH — Patricia “Pat” Hincks Zimont, 78, of Yarmouth died on Thursday, July 25, 2013 after a lengthy illness.

She was born in North Yarmouth on Sept. 13, 1934 to Ulysses and Hazel (Leighton) Hincks and was educated in Yarmouth schools, graduating from North Yarmouth Academy in 1953, which at that time served Yarmouth’s public high school students. She attended Westbrook College. In 1955, she married Walter Zimont in Yarmouth, where they made their home and raised their family.

Mrs. Zimont was a homemaker until 1974, when she went to work for L.L. Bean in the order entry department, retiring in 1989. After her retirement, she served on the Yarmouth Health Council as treasurer for over 25 years, and was a member of the Women's Home Extension prior to working at L.L. Bean.

She was immensely proud of her family, and was known for hosting special holiday celebrations and summer cookouts on the back deck, or on rainy days, in the garage. She was an avid reader, and enjoyed and excelled at cooking, especially after her retirement. She and her husband, Walter, spent many trips camping, first with their children when they were young, and then with their grandchildren, and touring the eastern part of the United States and the Maritimes in Canada.

Mrs. Zimont is survived by her husband of 58 years, Walter W. Zimont; her daughter Julia Zimont; three granddaughters including Amanda Zimont of Bridgton; five great-grandchildren, as well as an expected great-grandson in September; two step-grandchildren; and “adopted” daughter, Linda Wheeler Roberts.

She was predeceased by her parents; and by her son, Thomas Robert (“Tim”) Zimont in July 2012.
