I have the most fondest memories of Mim going back to my days at JC Rhodes/PCI. She was also helpful in helping my children learn to bowl at Bowlers Country Club. Through the years, we stayed in touch and she will be missed. Deepest condolences to Joann and Don and the family.
Always, Jeanne and Frank Germano
PS. Love the picture.

She was always there for me and my biggest fan! We are so incredibly lucky to have spent all these years together. As her granddaughter she was an amazing grandmother but an even better great grandmother to my kids and nephew. She taught us so much and how to be strong. Life won't be the same without her but grateful for every minute we did spend together.❤
