Mary Ellen Zimmerman

Mary passed away December 10, 2012, at her home. She was born on September 3, 1930, in Marion, Ohio, to the late Ray and Mary Ann (Moffett) Yost. She enjoyed quilting, embroidery, traveling, and cooking. She was very active in her Florida community, Cyprus Bend, entertaining and preparing meals for over 400 people.

McCullough, Amber (Dan) Wamer, and April (Bret) Ginn; 13 great-grandchildren; three nieces; and seven nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by three sisters, Eleanor Clark, Dorothy Burke, and Pauline Burns; and one brother, Charles Yost.

The family will receive friends at the Thornville Funeral Home on Thursday, December 13, from 4-6 p.m.

The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to Hospice of Central Ohio and Home Instead of Fairfield County for the loving care they provided to Mary.
