Mount Vernon, Ohio

Betty Eileen Zimmerman, age 92, of Mount Vernon, Ohio passed away on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at her residence.  She was born in Detroit, Michigan on July 15, 1928 to the late William and Helen (Schmischke) Carlson.

After high school Betty attended nursing school and eventually became a Registered Nurse.  She worked and retired from Knox Community Hospital in Mount Vernon.  She enjoyed traveling and her favorite spot was the Caribbean.  After her retirement, her favorite thing to do was grab a fresh cup of coffee and read the newspaper.  Betty loved her family dearly and will be missed by many.

She is survived by her children, Rick, Shelley and Todd Zimmerman; and grandchild, Kristofer Zimmerman.

Along with her parents, Betty is preceded in death by her husband Richard Zimmerman; a son Kim Zimmerman; and brothers, Robert and Russel Carlson.

  • To the family: I worked with Betty for many years at Mercy and KCH. She always treated her patients with respect and dignity. May God be with her family in this time of need.

  • We have fond memories of Betty. We her knew through her son Rick during high school and “Sing Out Knox County” She always had kind words, a smile and great hospitality. To Rick and all the family you are in our prayers. John and Betsy Nixon and family.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories growing up on the same road and becoming friends with Shelly and Todd. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
