Carole Ann Zimmerman

December 12, 1948 ‒ November 18, 2011

Mansfield, Ohio

Carole Ann Zimmerman, born December 12, 1948,

loving mother to Charles Williams and Amy

Bigler, and grandmother to Kendra, Tessa, and

Isabella Bigler has journeyed home to her

Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in Heaven on

Friday, November 18, 2011. She was 62.

Carole was preceded in death by her

parents Howard and Margaret (Harrold)

Perathaner, and her brother Bruce Perathaner.

Carole was a lifelong Mansfield resident and

a graduate of Malabar High School, class of

1966. Immediately after high school Carole

obtained employment at the local phone

company, where she worked tirelessly for 40

years to provide for her family.

Carole was a member of several groups

over her lifetime, from time as a union

representative at the phone company, to her

involvement with the AMVETS and the 37th

Division veterans group. She worked

extensively in the community with All God’s

Children and Kings of Service Daughters at

Central United Methodist Church and the

Women’s Democratic Party.

After retiring from the phone

company, Carole was able to join the

Sociables Group and spend more time with her

friends Connie Marfia, Pauline Malone, Chris

Calhoun, Betty Sherman, Eleanor Dixon Wade,

and so many others. She enjoyed preserving

her memories through scrapbooking and

blessing family and friends through her

wonderful cooking. As much as Carole was

proud of her lady bug collection it paled in

comparison to how she cherished playing with

and loving her granddaughters.

Memorial services for Carole will be

Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at 11am with her

beloved church family at Chapel Hill United

Methodist Church, located at 3716 Bellville

North Road. Interment will take place at a

future date.

Please send any donations to Chapel

Hill United Methodist Church for their

ministry or dedicate a Bible in her name with

Gideons International.
