Terri M. Zimmermann (nee Pass) died peacefully surrounded by her family on Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012, at Waukesha Memorial Hospital at the age of 62.
She was born on Oct. 21, 1950, in Milwaukee, the daughter of Arthur Leonard and June Dae (nee Marks) Pass. She had been employed as a buyer for Kranz, Inc. in Racine for many years before she began her dream job as a food demonstrator at Sam’s Club.
Terri loved to cook, see people happy and loved all animals, always keeping dog treats in her pocket. She was instrumental in starting a community garden at her apartment complex, in which they were able to have a good size garden, harvesting their vegetables in the fall.
She will be sadly missed by her daughter Erica Zimmermann and son-in-law Michael Johnkowski of Coloma; grandchildren Jacob Stewart of Muskego and Elijah Johnkowski of Coloma; brother Mark (Sally) Pass of Waukesha and sister Debra (David) Kneib of Wauwatosa. She is further survived by her nieces Shoshannah Pass and Hannah Kneib, nephew Joshua Pass, loving cousins, other family, many dear friends, especially her four-legged friend Maury. She was preceded in death by her parents.
