MARGARETE E. (ZIMMER) BULMASH, 82, died July 8, 2019, in Marietta, Ga. She was born Nov. 19, 1936, to Jacob Zimmer and Elizabeth (Stambach) Zimmer in Strasbourg, France. She was a Holocaust survivor along with her brother, Fritz Zimmer (Inge Wexler). Margarete immigrated to the U.S. in 1958, where she met Jerome M. Bulmash whom she married on July 23,1959. She was educated in dietetics in Germany and later at the University of Cincinnati. In her early career, she worked as a dietitian. For her next chapter, she worked in retail for an art gallery and as a manager for woman’s clothing stores. From the 1990s, she worked as a Realtor in Flint and later in Marietta. For the last 20 years of her life, Margarete parlayed her love of animals into launching a successful pet-sitting business. She was always generous and supportive of her family and friends and devoted her time as a wonderful parent and grandparent. She loved art, films and music. Mrs. Bulmash is survived by her three children, Mark (Lisbeth Jacobs), Nelson (Susan Perrotti) and Rebecca; grandchildren, Reese Bulmash, Ariel Bulmash, Sophia Bulmash, Hannah Bulmash, Benjamin Bulmash, Brooke Bulmash and Grant Bulmash. A memorial service will be held at a yet to be determined date. Contributions may be made to Susan G. Komen for the Cure or the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

DON’T STOP NOW. By now, you know each other so well you feel you’re part of each other (and you are). You know exactly what each other is thinking before it’s said. With an event as important as this, it never hurts to discuss your choices and plan ahead. Once you make prearrangements, there’s never any question about what you would have wanted... it’s all understood.
