Dr. Howard Zimring & Casey Myers Memorial Funds

When we lose special people in our lives, we often feel compelled to do something to honor their memory. CentraCare Health lost two family members in the past few months and now their colleagues have chosen to honor their legacy by creating a named fund through CentraCare Health Foundation.

The Dr. Howard Zimring Memorial Fund has been established in his name through the CentraCare Health Foundation. Dr. Zimring, a Heart & Vascular Center Cardiologist for 18 years, passed away unexpectedly in winter 2019 of a cardiac arrest while he was biking. This fund will benefit the greatest needs of the CentraCare Heart & Vascular Center.

Howard Zimring, MD

The Casey Myers’ Fund has been established after Casey, an Adult & Pediatric Occupational Therapist, passed away tragically in an automobile accident, along with son Simon, in fall 2018. The Casey Myers’ Fund at the CentraCare Health Foundation will help to carry on her legacy and will be used to assist Rehabilitation patients with the purchase of therapeutic equipment not covered by insurance such as weighted blankets, brushes, specialized prism glasses or swings, etc. Casey Myers & Family

Pediatric and Adult Rehabilitation, with the blessing of Casey’s family, also is purchasing a memorial bench in honor of Casey and Simon. It will be located along the walking path at CentraCare Health Plaza where Casey frequently walked.
