Mimi was an incredible cook and baker and demonstrated her love through her food. She was a devoted mother to her three children, Jan, Jeff and Amy.

Mimi believed in service. She spent her time advocating for children, working countless hours on committees and in the hospital flower shop arranging gifts to bring joy to others. She also dedicated her time to scholarship programs for girls to further their education as another example of her philanthropic endeavors.

Mimi was a wonderful friend and one of her favorite activities was playing bridge. Mimi loved and adored her grandchildren. She bragged about them and wore their names proudly on many items of clothing. She loved to bake and spend time with them. They were truly her pride and joy. Mimi had a patient and kind demeanor, a warm smile, easy laugh and was beautiful on the inside and out. She will be greatly missed and always remembered.
