I am deeply disappointed that I learned too late about Mimi’s passing to attend her funeral.
Mimi was like a mother to me.
My fondest memories of her are the times she corrected the Yiddish expressions that I had learned from my mother years ago.
We painted together at Marblehead Senior Center from 2013-2015.
Included is a photo of those happy times at art class.
After that, we were so happy to see each other at SAA art exhibits take-ins.
I am so sorry We lost Mimi.
