Upon her completion of her degree from MSU she pursued and became a dedicated educator in the Grand Rapids school system in many different capacities.

Her children and children's children will remember Mimi as a wise woman of faith with a great capacity for listening and understanding. Her love language was cooking, singing and sewing that she joyously and generously shared with family and friends.
