    Michelle (Morgano) Zimmerman: Courageous fighter, Michelle (Morgano) Zimmerman, 29, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, February 18, 2014, at 10:33 p.m. Her battle against brain cancer began with her diagnosis in October 2012. After 4 surgeries and trying various treatments, the tumor proved too aggressive for further treatment. Her positive attitude and sense of humor were evident always. She impacted the doctors and nursing staffs at every facility she was admitted to and she shared her strength and encouragement with those in her support group at The Living Well in Geneva. Michelle was born on May 9, 1984, to John and Ruth (Thompson) Morgano in Arlington Heights. She attended Rosary High School in Aurora where she was a swimmer and played flute in the band. She also attended Waubonsee Community College where she earned a B.S.N.. Music was a large part of Michelle's life and her favorite bands were The Beatles (particularly George Harrison) and Kiss. Her love for the Beatles has been passed on to her daughter, Layla. Michelle is survived by her husband of 3 years, Mark, and her 2 year old daughter, Layla; her father John Morgano and step-mother Marianne of St. Charles; her mother Ruth (Thompson) Morgano of Batavia; brothers George and Howie and sisters Katie and Tasha of Batavia; paternal grandmother Nancy Morgano of St. Charles; maternal grandmother Marilyn Thompson of Troy, MI; and several aunts, uncles and cousins. Her cousin Janelle Reske and friend Kristen White were particularly helpful during her stays at UIC, RIC and Northwestern in Chicago. She is also survived by friends and family too numerous to mention but certainly not forgotten who have walked her journey with her. She was preceded in death by, her paternal grandfather Peter Morgano, and maternal grandfather Howard Thompson. There will be a memorial visitation at Laird Funeral Home in Elgin from 4 to 8 PM Saturday, Feb. 22, with a memorial service at 7:30 PM.
