Edna Zimmermann, my Mom, was born on January 22, 1922 and passed away on March 15, 2015. During her lifetime, she was a mother to two, grandmother to five and great-grandmother to seven. She and my Father, Bill, were loving examples of living the Christian life to all of us in the family.
As a member of the Broadway Baptist Church, first, and then as our merger with the Van Riper Ellis Church, Edna served as the Church Secretary for 24 years. Pastor Barth, whom she served under, said of her that she was "totally loyal, dedicated and a greatly-gifted office partner." She, also, served on many Boards and committees of the church, always serving with an enthusiasm and servant's spirit.
As we dedicate this website in my Mom's memory, I pray that you will be blessed by attending our church and hearing the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which was a daily part of her walk with the Lord. A Bible verse that was dear to her heart was, Jeremiah 29:11, " For I know the plans I have for you ", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I think Mom would like this and I hope the church will be blessed by it.
