Mamie lived for the past four years at Parkview Health Care Facility in Bolivar, MO where she leaves behind many friends who loved her and will greatly miss her. Mamie went to school in Tunas, Missouri. Carl and Mamie moved to the Kansas City area where Carl could find work to support their family. Mamie was a homemaker for many years while raising their children. She did work at Woolworth’s, Crane’s cafeteria, various nursing homes as a nurses’ aide, and at Catherine’s Dress shop where she enjoyed working. Mamie and Carl opened their home to several foster children for many, many years. Mamie made some of the children’s clothes when they were young. Especially for vacations, where most of the family was dressed in the same shirts. Vacations were trips to California to see Mamie’s brothers and camping trips at Lake Pomme de Terre. Carl and Mamie did adventure a time or two to Ohio to travel with their oldest son David and his wife Linda to Washington DC, Colonial Williamsburg Virginia and Charleston South Carolina. Mamie helped with large gardens and canned a lot of the produce. She did some embroidery work and played cards, dominos, farkel and yatzee with her grandkids and great grandkiddos. She also loved cats, birds, anything with butterflies and her large collection of dolls. After Carl and Mamie’s children where grown and through school, they moved around from Belton, Independence, Buffalo and back to Independence. After Carl passed away Mamie moved to Buckner, Hermitage and then to Parkview Health Care Facility in Bolivar, Missouri. Mamie’s family got to make some good memories with her the last few days of her life. She is now resting peacefully with her Lord and Savior!

Mamie was always a part of our metro life and even provided child care for Stephanie and Scott. She was a great lady and family aunt. We know it will be hard without her in your lives and I just pray that the Lord will provide the grace, comfort and Healing that only He can provide. We have all been blessed with knowing Mamie. We will miss her but will see her again when that time arrives.

Sorry to hear about your mothers passing, even though I only knew her a short time she has a special spot in my heart. I often had lunch at the table with her when visiting my mom. Marilyn's daughter Brenda.
