Carma Jean Zimmerman

November 18, 1946 — November 23, 2022


Carma Zimmerman was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She left this world
on November 23, 2022 at age 76. Carma was born to Ellsworth and Lillian Heinle on November 18, 1946 in Williston, North Dakota. Her family moved to Roundup, Montana where she met her husband Jim Zimmerman. Jim and Carma were married February 3, 1964. Together they had 4 children: Brenda, Bryan, Marci, and Jason. Carma enjoyed volunteering in her kids’ classrooms. She was a Girl Scout troop leader for many years. She enjoyed gardening, baking, and decorating the house for all holidays. Carma’s favorite hobby was working on counted cross stitch. She and a few friends would meet every week to stitch and talk about their lives. After the kids and grandkids were grown, she found the house a little too quiet and empty. Carma spent many hours searching for the perfect addition to the family. She finally found a small dog named Ginger in Montana. The adoption application was approved, and Ginger, Jim, and Carma spent their retirement years together. Carma is survived by her daughters Brenda (Galen) Vernon and Marci (Leo) Kelhi, son Jason (JoLana) Zimmerman, granddaughters Amanda Mittlieder and Jasmyn Zimmerman, sister Pam Marking, and many nieces and nephews. Carma is welcomed home by husband Jim, son Bryan, her parents Ellsworth and Lillian, and her beloved dog Ginger. A joint celebration of life for Carma and Jim will be held at a later date. Memorials and condolences may be sent in care of Gillette Memorial Chapel 210 West 5th Street, Gillette, WY 82716. Condolences may also be expressed at
