On Wednesday, June 17, 2020, Imogene Zimmerman received her call from heaven at the age of 92.

Imogene loved working with children. She taught the 4th grade in public school and also was a school counselor. She transitioned into private counseling with Dr. Kevin Leman. The field of psycho educational assessment brought her back into working with children.
