Marley Carol Zimmerman, of Thurmont, was born September 11, 1991. She left this life April 28, 2017.
"Missy M" (Merv) was a girl's girl. Soft and feathery. Glittering and shining. A flash of lightning. A bolt of energy. A force of nature. She loved children and family; whimsy and all things Disney. She was one of a kind-always.
She leaves behind the loves of her life, son, Axel Aaron and partner, Austin Mack.
She was loved more than life by her mother, Rebecca (Rob) Hankey; and sister, Bailey Zimmerman (Tom Kesteven and baby Maddox). Josh, Justin (Brittany), and Caitlin (Raul Moran) Hankey were technically her step-siblings, Marley had no use for that term. They were simply brothers and a sister she loved with all her heart.
She was also cherished by her grandfather, Carl Thayer, Sr.; uncles Carl Thayer, Jr. and Stephen Thayer; and aunts Mary (Steve) Haugen and Kathy (Steve) Nicholakos. She was predeceased by her "Granny Helena" Thayer and Opa, Richard (Dick) Hankey.
Marley is also survived by her father, Rick Zimmerman, his sister Debrah, and his parents, Carol and Charles Zimmerman.
Marley will be lovingly remembered by aunt Laurel (Ed) Mitchell and grandmother Joan Hankey, as well as many other family members including oodles of nieces and nephews that she dearly loved.
Visitation will be from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 4, 2017 at Stauffer Funeral Home, 104 East Main Street, Thurmont, Maryland.
A celebration of life is scheduled at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 5 at St. John's Lutheran Church in Creagerstown, Maryland. In addition to flowers and condolences, a donation can be made to the Axel Mack fund at Frederick County Bank.
