Zimmerman, Ava Marie Age 5, died tragically April 14, 2010 in Greendale, Wisconsin. It’s hard to find the right words to describe a child who’s life was taken too soon, but in Ava’s case, a lifetime of love, happiness and nurturing has poured out from her from the very beginning. She had a unique personality – loved the outdoors, her cousins, sports and just being around all those whom she loved. Ava’s amazing bright, vibrant and loving nature will be deeply missed by all those whose lives she has touched. She was born on December 2, 2004. Beloved “baby girl” of Stephen and Tanya Zimmerman and adoring brother Anthony “Bubba” (4 years old). Loving granddaughter of Marshall & Brenda “Nana” Hecker and Dave & Peggy Zimmerman. Great-granddaughter of June and the late Donald Hecker, Sr.; Thomas and Mary Jane Iwinski; the late Carl and Edith Lund; and the late Eliot and Jane Zimmerman. Precious niece of Jenny & Tony Dombrowski; Christy & Matt Cool; Mike & Bridget Zimmerman; Joe & Kim Zimmerman; Nellie & Derek Foster; Bill Zimmerman (Janelle Freckman); Jane Zimmerman (Josh Walsh); and Meg Zimmerman. Sadly missed by cousins Paige, Luke, Isabella, Drew, Sean, Madelyn, Jack, Samuel, Eliot, Carter, Calla, Brady, Clare, Olivia and Lilyan. She was preceded in death by her precious cousin Lily May Dombrowski. In leiu of flowers please make donations to the Memorial fund established through Associated Bank, 5651 Broad Street, Greendale, WI 53129. Visitation on Saturday April 17, 2010 at ST.
