Carol Marie Zimmerman

May 13, 1934 — June 20, 2020

Our mother, Carol Marie (Bulcher) Zimmerman, age 86 years, danced her way into heaven on June 20, 2020. Her parents, Cecilia (McEldowney) and Cletus Bulcher, her husband Richard C Zimmerman and son Richard P Zimmerman preceded her in death. She was a native Daytonian and a proud graduate of Holy Trinity Grade School, St. Joseph Commercial High School and the University of Dayton. She retired from Delco Moraine, GMC and was involved in the hourly and salaried retirement events. She was also involved in grade school and high school get-togethers, lunches with her Beta Sigma Phi sorority sisters, monthly Zim dinners and was a member of the post 598 American Legion Auxiliary. Carol was married to Richard (Dick) C. Zimmerman in 1957 and they have six children; Rick (Dawn), Lee (Barb), Ann (Matt) Moore, Carla (Bart Armitage) Zimmerman, Julie (Andy) Meilstrup and Lynn Zimmerman. She also has 13 grandchildren and 13-½ great-grandchildren. Additionally loved ones include her brother, James Bulcher, his 4 sons, their families as well as her McEldowney & Bulcher cousins. She loved and was embraced by her husband’s siblings and their families who are too numerous to list.
The visitation will be held at Routsong Funeral Home, Kettering, Thursday, June 25 from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Her children will be present, but there will be no receiving line and social distancing, with masks required, will be practiced. Funeral memorial mass will be held at Holy Trinity Church, 272 Bainbridge Street, Dayton, OH, Friday June 26 at 10:00am. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Holy Trinity Church.

May she rest in peace and continue dancing.
