October 27, 1921 - March 4, 2012
Mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Adele Zimmerman left our physical world on March 4, 2012, at the wonderful age of 90. Graveside services will take place at Beth Israel Memorial Gardens, 1101 Antoine Drive, Houston, TX on Tuesday, March 6, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. Adele was a 2-1/2 year resident of The Atriums in Overland Park, KS, having moved there from Houston, TX. She was born in the Bronx, NY, one of eight children born to Asher and Martha Freiman who passed through Ellis Island. In 1945 Adele boldly traveled to St. Louis, MO, to visit family members and there met her husband Daniel whom she married the same year. They resided in St. Louis until 2002 when they moved to Houston, TX. Their love affair lasted 61 years. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Daniel in 2007. Family was paramount to Adele, and she leaves behind to mourn her passing daughter Rhonda Bass (Ariel) of Bellaire, TX and sons Gary Zimmerman (Darlene) and Shelden Zimmerman (Johnette) both of Overland Park, KS, as well as brothers Seymour Freiman of Hallandale, FL and Hyman Freiman (Irma) of Boynton Beach, FL and sister Sylvia Ginsberg of Riverdale, NY. Adele’s life was further enriched by favored nieces Hillary Ginsberg (Robert Cianchette) of NY, NY, Enid (Mel) Nass of Riverdale, NY and Lynn Zirkes of Cincinnati, OH. Her true legacy as a phenomenal grandmother will be joyfully remembered by Tracie (Jason King) Sands, Scott (Marisa) Zimmerman, Seth Zimmerman, Andrew Zimmerman, Oren Bass, Rikki Bass (fiancé Adam Sevell), Jonathan Bass and Benjamin Bass and great-grandchildren Jared Sands, Emery King, Megan King and Evan King. We would like to thank the caring hospice staff and the wonderful residents and staff of The Atriums for opening their hearts and arms to our incredible Mother. If desired, donations may be made to The American Cancer Society, Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care (10100 W. 87th Street, Ste. 100, Overland Park, KS 66212) or a charity of one’s choice.
