Shelley A. (Faulling)'s Story
Shelley A. (Faulling) Zimmerman, 64, of Lynn and formerly of Salem, passed away Friday, with her family by her side at the Blueberry Hill Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Beverly following a courageous battle with cancer. She was the devoted wife of Charles R. Zimmerman with whom she shared nearly 20 years of marriage.
Born and raised in Salem, she was the daughter of Theresa (Lemlin) Faulling of Salem and the late Lawrence M. Faulling. A graduate of Salem High, Shelley began working as an administrative assistant for the Imperial Construction Co. of Malden 40 years ago; a job which morphed into an onsite project manager and in some instances, construction worker for the company founded by her husband. She retired due to her failing health.
In addition to her husband, Charles, and mother, Theresa, she is survived by two step-daughters, Karen L. Janeiro and her husband, Joseph of Melrose, Deborah E. Marchant of Haverhill; two step-sons, Raymond M. Zimmerman and Ronald F. Zimmerman, both of Malden; a brother, Lawrence M. “Buster” Faulling, Jr. of Lynn; and three sisters, Florence S. Russell, Karen R., and Robin T. Faulling, all of Salem. She also leaves ten step-grandchildren and five step-great-grandchildren, as well as nieces and nephews.
