Mamie McMahon

August 21, 1934August 8, 2018

Mamie (Carter) McMahon, age 83, of Lincoln, NE passed away on August 8, 2018 at Eastmont Towers. Mamie Lynn was born to Rev. David and Evalyn (Bennett) Carter in Manchester, Connecticut on August 21, 1934. Her father served the United Methodist Church in several places across Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island while she was growing up. Mamie graduated from Rogers High School in Newport, RI, attended the University of Rhode Island and was a member of Delta Zeta Sorority. She met Monty McMahon, a Nebraska native in Newport where he was stationed in the US Navy and would occasionally sing in the St. Paul United Methodist Church choir. One Sunday Rev. Carter invited Monty to dinner at their home after church. The two met and were eventually married at the same church on June 18, 1955 and moved to Lincoln shortly after. To this union three children were born; Cheryl, Jeff and Catherine. Mamie enjoyed playing bridge, traveling, cheering on her Salt Dogs, Red Sox, and Cubbies and especially following her grandchildren’s activities. She played with a bridge group that she started with a few friends in 1962 until shortly before her death. She cherished the times she could spend on the New England coastline. Mamie worked in sales at Miller and Paine/Dillard’s during the 1980’s. Her parents and her husband Monty preceded her in death. Mamie is survived by her daughters Cheryl (Dave) Griffith of Lincoln, Catherine (Timothy) Brown of Omaha, NE, son Jeff (Sheri) McMahon of Leawood, KS, grandchildren Alison Griffith, Adam and Alexander Brown and Delaney McMahon, brothers Ted (Ginny) Carter of Reston, VA and John (Dorothy) Carter of Wakefield RI, nieces and nephews. A private graveside service will be held at Lincoln Memorial Cemetery. Memorials to the Lincoln Children’s Zoo and cards may be sent to Lincoln Memorial Funeral Home at 6800 So. 14th St., Lincoln, NE 68512. Online condolences to

My deepest condolences to the family. Mamie was a good friend and awesome customer. Monte loved to buy her her bling and she loved wearing it.
It was always so fun to work with them. Then after Montes death we maintained our relationship by updating her wed set in his memory.
I will miss her. She loved to come in and tell me the stories from all her travels with Jeff and family.
Peace and Love in this time. I hope your warmest memories give you all peace.

I had the pleasure of being Mamie's hairstylist for the past 12 years. She was a joy to work with...always smiling and always so nice. I miss her every Wednesday morning at 10:30.

What I remember most is her laugh! And it was infectious to where we would both laugh for minutes. Every time I was around her that was my mission. You have a special place in my heart.
